U23 & SENIOR COMPETITIVE
We aim to develop a reputation as a centre of excellence with the overall objectives of helping experienced athletes take the next step to the National level and developing newer rowers for their respective university teams. In 2015, all competitive categories will be represented in both sweep and sculling events. In 2013, ten crews reached the finals at Henley and Hanlan won gold in the Sr M1x and the Sr W Lwt 4-. In the fall, Hanlan placed three crews in the top 10 at HOCR. The Summer Club Team will focus on achieving results at the Ontario Championships in late July and Canadian Henley in early August. The fall season will focus on head races in late September and October before turning our attention to the National Rowing Championships.
