    Student Rowing Program

     

    No previous rowing experience required.  Rowing is a great sport that provides a complete body workout and builds an excellent sense of team sportsmanship as well as providing discipline to work hard both individually and as a team.

    Bantams:  Elementary students who are currently in Grade 7 (or will be entering Grade 7 in the fall).

    High School:  Any student currently enrolled full time in high school

    Programs

    Recreational vs Competitive:

    All students are encouraged to row at a competitive level, meaning they will attend regattas throughout the rowing season (See Regattas and Events).

    The high school competitive season is in May-June, during which time the students compete for their high school.  For the remainder of the rowing season, students compete as members of the Tillsonburg Rowing Club.

    If students wish to row strictly at a recreational level, this will be accommodated at the regularly scheduled practice times.

    Practice times:

    Practices are generally held 3-4 evenings a week.  Morning practices may occur for Competitive rowers during the week and on Saturdays. 

    Practices are held year-round.  Rowing on the water generally takes place from April – November, while winter training takes place on indoor rowing machines from November- March.
