Rowing – Co-ed

Winter Training

The opening of the Chauvin Rowing Room in January 2011 marked the start of a formal winter training program to support the spring rowing season. The room itself houses 15 rowing machines and a space for the athletes to complete a series of core based conditioning activities. In addition to using this space, those athletes training in the winter also travel to Trent University to use their indoor rowing tank to simulate “on water” rowing.

Spring Competition

At the junior level, the rowing program strives to provide the opportunity for students to learn basic technical skills, become introduced to racing and take pride in becoming part of a team. As members of the team move to the senior ranks, the focus shifts to a training regimen that has a greater level of intensity with the goal of ultimately experiencing high level competition at our national championships regatta – the Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association Championships (CSSRA).

On Water Training

The team training venue is just north of Port Hope on Rice Lake. The program is fortunate to have access to a wide range of high quality equipment from single sculls to eights.
