Junior Competitive Program – Program Changes due to Covid-19
Registration available in stages according to various safety factors, and only for members returning from 2019. Please consult your coach with any questions.
The Junior Competitive Rowing program is geared toward rowers (aged 14 – 18) who have finished a Learn-to-Row or Youth Summer Camp program, or have previous rowing experience. This program runs year round and is geared towards competitive athletes looking to challenge themselves in the sport.
This program requires a commitment to 4 – 12 training sessions per week.
From April through October, training will be outside on the Credit River in Mississauga. During the winter months, training is conducted indoors at the rowing club. The Junior Program attends numerous regattas (races) throughout the year:
- Spring: Mother’s Day Regatta, High School Invitational, CSSRA Regatta
- Summer: Canada Day Regatta, CORA Regattas, Ontario Rowing Championships, Royal Canadian Henley
- Fall: Head of the Welland, Head of the Trent, Head of the Charles
- Winter: Canadian Indoor Rowing Championships, Ontario Indoor Rowing Championships
The Junior program also holds a “Spring Training Camp” during March break to help refresh rowing skills and fitness at the start of the Spring season, and to provide a much-needed break from the cold Canadian weather. Past training camps have been held in Arizona, Texas and Mexico.
