Light Blues Programme
The Light Blues Programme (Year 12 Blues) is a development programme for rowers and coxswains in Year 12 of school in the Auckland region. Those involved in the programme will attend three development camps hosted at rowing clubs around Auckland, where they will be able to build upon their skills, take away new learnings and meet and form friendships with rowers from other schools.
This programme will also provide; introductory strength and conditioning sessions where those involved will learn basic fundamental skills that will be useful as they progress in their rowing journey, coxswain development, as well as insight and tools on how to navigate life as a high performance athlete.
This programme will operate like a “rep-team”, so we are looking for athletes who are looking to progress their development and have future aspirations of making Auckland regional or New Zealand representative teams.
Another purpose of this programme is to select an Under-20 Interprovincial Squad to represent the Auckland region at the Interprovincial Championships in late September 2023.
