Registration is currently OPEN. However, due to provincial restrictions we will be opening in stages. Recreational and Competitive members are now allowed on the water; however, this will currently only available to experienced 1x and 2x (within same household) or in crew boats with members outside of household pending signing of waiver. We fully understand that this will be disappointing to some of our members but appreciate your patience, as we have to keep the safety of our coaches, volunteers, employees and members paramount.
The DRC Board of Directors is defining experienced single scullers as the following, which is also outlined in the detailed COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).
Only experienced single scullers will be allowed on the water. The club defines an experienced single sculler as:
Having race experience in a single
Having at least one season of training regularly in a single (3 or more times a week)
Feels confident getting back in a capsized boat
To limit risk and contact between coaches and athletes, the board reserves the right to refuse a member to row based on experience.
There continue to be strict rules in place (which are outlined in detail in the DRC COVID SOPs, and you will be given a link to those, and all other information once registration and payment are complete):
You must still be an experienced sculler (one season minimum in a single or double);
Your double's partner can live outside your household, but MUST sign a waiver;
If you are not comfortable rowing in larger crew boats with people outside your household that is 100% ok. However, if you do not have a double's partner, you must be comfortable and experienced rowing a single.
If you are identified in this group, you will be contacted directly to when you will able to start rowing. If you have any specific questions regarding this, please contact Club President, Jenn Durward directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
This program is for athletes committed to a year around training program and to the summer and fall racing schedule. All those representing DRC at regattas are required to race in an official DRC Unisuit. These are available for purchase if you do not already have one.
**NOT OFFERED IN 2021 - HOPE TO SEE YOU IN 2022**
The High school Competitive Rowing Program is geared for youth age 14-18 who are committed to learning how to train and continuing to train at a competitive level. In this program they will increase their rowing skills and build the strength, endurance and technique that is necessary for competition. This program gives the athletes experience in both sweep and sculling. Rowers are required to attend all practices which run Monday-Friday, 5:15-7:00am from early May until mid June. Regattas attended will depend on the group and their coaches. This program is a great way to prepare for the summer club competitive program.
Summer Club:The Club Competitive program is geared towards ALL ages (Junior, U23, Senior, Masters) who are committed to training for competition throughout the summer. There is some opportunity for training and competing in the fall, however this needs to be communicated to your coach if you wish to do so.
DRC trailer may not travel to these Masters regattas. Single sculler boats may travel on the trailer if there is room, and will pay their share of trailering fees. DRC is not liable for any damages.
