The St. Catharines Rowing Club is putting plans in place for a return to rowing for students this spring
The St. Catharines Rowing Club (SCRC) is hoping to offer a 2021 Spring Rowing experience for local area students. As COVID limits what the SCRC can offer, we hope that a less restrictive COVID Code will allow us to provide an exciting Spring rowing experience.
The COVID-19 pandemic has severely limited sports clubs and other organized athletic activities and team sports. Even casual recreational exercise with our friends has been modified. All of these activities are usually taken for granted. Our Niagara school athletes have also been significantly affected by the closures.
We strongly encourage experienced rowers and those that have not rowed before, to access the link Rowing Lead Coach to contact the designated coach for your school. Through the month of March and possibly April, a land-based training program will be made available modified to what equipment is available to each athlete. The coach will also act as a liaison with the SCRC for information regarding on-water activities.
The COVID restrictions and protocol of the day, equipment and coaching availability, and athlete sculling experience will all factor into what can be offered on-water moving forward.
There will be no charge for the land training.
On-water fees will be determined once we have a clearer indication of what can be offered as well as a start date confirmed.
This opportunity is available to all students in Grades 9 through Grade 12B
As always, Niagara Region Public Health COVID protocols will determine our programming.
What if my school doesn't have a rowing program?
Students who attend a Secondary School that does not have school-based rowing program can participate in this program. Please contact our SCRC Club Manager about joining the SCRC Secondary School rowing program.
