OVERVIEW
PRC adult programs are for rowers of all athletic backgrounds and ages.  We offer a variety of programs to match skill level and competitive interest.  All of our programs take place on one of the most beautiful places to row in Canada, the Otonabee River.  Introductory programs, like Learn to Row and Return to Row, provide participants with the basics of the sport in a fun, engaging and safe environment.  The Row for Life Program is a training group open to anyone who has rowing experience and wants to row for fitness, health and fun.  Club & Competitive Programs provide experienced rowers with the opportunity to train in a coached environment and compete at provincial, national, and sometimes even international regattas.

Learn to row

DESCRIPTION

The Learn to Row program introduces adults to the sport of rowing.  Are you a Cross-fitter wanting to learn what an erg is actually used to train for?  Are you a curious parent looking to experience rowing for the first time since your child picked up an oar?  Then look no further. Rowing is a true lifelong sport that is uniquely positioned to address the various fitness needs of people throughout their lifetime.  Everyone is welcome!
