Start date: March 29, 2021* In order to align program dates with the RCA year, the start date shown in WebReg is April 1; however training for the Spring/Summer season will start March 29.
End date: August 1, 2021
Capacity: 78-86 athletes
Program capacity is currently determined by COVID-19 restrictions that limit rowing to 1xs. We anticipate that program capacity will increase as restriction ease to allow rowing in crew boats.
Priority for registration in the Spring/Summer program will be given to athletes currently registered with VCRC.
Practice Schedules and times
Athletes will continue in the same groups to which they were assigned in the Winter, with the same practice schedule. Start times may be adjusted to manage the flow of athletes in order to align with changing COVID-19 restrictions.
** If you are currently part of the program and would like to change practice schedule, please contact Katie Bahain-Steenman before March 22 via Slack.
All communication will happen via 'slack' please send all email addresses you would like to link up to our communication tool to firstname.lastname@example.org
There is still uncertainty regarding the regatta season - when regattas will be allowed to resume and what format they will take. We will review plans for regattas as more information becomes available over the coming months. In the meantime, VCRC is organizing a series of competitive challenges for rowers at Elk Lake.
Regatta fees are not included in the Junior Spring/Summer fees.
