2018 Junior Competitive Program

Note: Athlete and Parent Information Meeting, 9 am, Sunday, June 10 at the boathouse.

The KRC Junior Competitive Program runs year-round. In the summer we offer a competitive program for both U19 and U17. This program is for junior athletes with experience training and/or competing. This program is targeted for youth who are looking to continue their development throughout the summer, as well as have the opportunity to race. 

Training Program:

The training program these rowers will be following is designed to accelerate each rower through the fundamental stages of skill development. As each skill level is mastered, teaching will advance from focusing on the individual components of the stroke (catch, drive, finish, recovery) and progress to length, power and rate. After the rower can demonstrate consistent length with proper posture, power will be applied at low rates. As the rower demonstrates the ability to hold proper technique and posture at a given rate, rates will be allowed to increase. Selected rowers may be invited to train with the senior KRC athletes if his/her technical ability warrants.

Training Times: 

Training starts Monday, June 11 at 5:15 am at the boathouse. Bring your running shoes. Season ends Saturday/Sunday July 28/29  at the Ontario Championships in London, ON. Selected athletes will be invited to train for the Royal Canadian Henley Regatta which runs from Tuesday, August 7 to Sunday, August 12.
