The Junior Competitive program offers athletes an opportunity to improve their rowing skills and begin to represent the province and club at competitive regattas. The long-run focus of the program is the 2021 Canada Games.
Athletes participating in the Junior Competitive program are required to have some rowing experience and have displayed both a dedication to the sport of rowing and the required training. Athletes who have participated in the Learn-to-Row and Youth Development programs may move on to the Junior Competitive on the recommendation of the club coaches. Both on-water and ergometer criteria are put in place by the coaching staff to determine a rower’s ability and to assist in boat and crew selection. The Junior Competitive rowers will travel to a variety of competitive regattas with a focus on developing racing skills and becoming comfortable with the racing environment.
For the most recent schedule of practices, please see the SJRC home page.
For Fall 2017, only rowers who have been enrolled throughout the season for Junior Competitive or Junior Competitive Developmental may participate in this program. Rowers who participated in the Learn-to-Row program during the summer of 2017 should continue in the Junior Development program for the fall season.
