The Barrie Rowing Club is a non-profit organization whose mission is to stimulate, advocate and develop the sport of rowing in the Barrie area and Simcoe County. To achieve a vibrant, strong and dynamic rowing community, we provide training programs targeted at individuals of all ages and abilities.
The Barrie Rowing Club is located in Simcoe County, at the gateway to Ontario’s tourism country, in one of the region’s most dynamic growth communities. Our club is nestled on beautiful Kempenfelt Bay, in the heart of downtown Barrie. We have 20 kilometres of rowable water and a large complement of club and privately owned touring and racing shells.
As of Monday July 13, 2020, face coverings are mandatory in all indoor public spaces in the County of Simcoe. Consequently all members are asked to wear a face mask while in any portion of the building.
BRC COVID-19 Protocols – Stage 2 Update
June 12, 2020
Earlier this week, the Province announced that, as of Friday June 12, gatherings of up to ten people will be permitted. Subsequently, the Barrie Rowing Club has increased the number of rowers per session to six from four. Members will be able to book up to three sessions per week as well as place their name on one standby spot per week. If a spot remains open 12 hours prior to the session, the standby person will be moved to that spot. The Club will monitor the effectiveness and efficiency of these measures and will expand or reduce these numbers based on performance.
We are also looking forward to implementing more structured training sessions in the future to provide some variety for folks looking for training opportunities prior to the return of competitive events.
All other Stage 1 COVID-19 Protocols remain in effect.
