Tipperary Sports Partnership and Rowing Ireland have teamed up to roll out a Tipperary School Get Going…Get Rowing Land based Programme. The aim of the programme is to introduce 5th and 6th class primary school children to the Sport of Rowing in a supportive environment.
In return for full commitment to the programme, each school receives six structured coaching sessions by a Rowing Ireland certified Community Coach in addition to the use of Rowing Ireland machines (located in Clonmel Rowing club).
Schools will also be encouraged to try an “On the water” rowing session for one of these programme sessions. This programme is heavily subsidised by Rowing Ireland and Tipperary Sports Partnership.
