New this year – Rowan’s Law.  

Row Ontario has been looking closely at current research, national sports and concussion groups to come up with a series of guidelines for Rowing Clubs in Ontario to follow. The Barrie Rowing Club is following these guidelines to ensure the health and safety of our athletes. Part of the policy in Rowan’s Law is also to educate both parents and athletes about concussions. The information guides for 15+ and 11-14 are found in the Forms & Documents section. Please indicate to us that you have read and understand the procedures and protocols of the Law by printing, signing and returning the RowOntario-Concussion-Code of Conduct-Athlete form found in the Forms & Documents section.

Learn To Row I: Int’row 2020 (16+ yr old)

This program is designed to take newcomers from dock side to rowing in one weekend. The first session (Friday 6:30-8:00 pm) will focus on safety, the equipment, and the basics of rowing on indoor rowing machines. Session 2 (Saturday 8:30-10:30 am) will be spent in our very stable recreational shells, covering the mechanics of a stroke. Session 3 (Sunday 8:30-10:30 am) will introduce drills to refine the stroke. Upon completion of Learn To Row I, you will be invited to join Learn To Row II or one of the Club’s other programs. It is highly recommended that you practice your new skills for a couple of weeks before signing up for LTR II.  LTR I graduates may participate in any of the tours sponsored by the Ontario Adventure Rowing Association. Those joining as annual members will receive an $80 discount.
