For the Townsman

Rockies Rowing Club is recruiting youth born in 2000 or later (age 14-15-16) to learn to row and try out for the Zone 1 BC Summer Games rowing crew.

The opportunity is open to males and females and the boats being selected are the single and double scull shown in the photo above.

Do you use the Concept II rowing machine at the gym to train for your sport? If yes then you already have an idea what is required.

You will be training to row a 1,500 metre time trial and a 1,000 metre heat in the Games regatta. You will be learning what is necessary to complete the skills test that is a part of the rowing program at the Games. You will be on the fast track to competition. Learn a new vocabulary along with a new sport.

Parents, contact Kurt at 250-278-2278 kurtgmohr@gmail.com or Roberta at 250-489-0174, rdmrodgers@gmail.com for more details, or come out to the Rockies Rowing Club open house on Sunday April 24, from 10 am-3 pm to sign up for lessons.
