Athlete Programs & Pathways

Summer Camps

This program runs every summer through the months of July and August. The focus of this program is on having fun in boats, developing skills and learning basic boatmanship.


Adult Recreational Rowing

Open to experienced and new rowers (with the completion of the Learn To Row program). This program will get you out onto the beautiful St. Lawrence River in one of our coastal rowing boats or a flatwater rowing shell. Sessions start in May and run through August.

Competitive Athlete Pathway

The competitive rowing program is geared towards rowers (aged 14-19) who have finished a Summer Camp or Learn to Row (LTR) session, or have previous rowing experience. Competitive rowing is a year round program that caters to athletes that are competitive by nature that are looking to challenge themselves in the sport. As a guideline we adhere to the Rowing Canada’s Long-term Athlete Development principles.

Balance before technique
Sculling technique before sweep technique
Power before endurance
Automate before repetition and fatigue
Posture, core and flexibility before loading

Our competitive programs require a commitment of 4-14 training sessions per week, and is divided into different levels based on skill level and commitment. 

During the on-water season (mid March to mid October) training will be outside on the St. Lawrence River and inside at our facility at 1 Ferry St. During the indoor months (mid October to mid March)training will be indoors at the rowing club.
