A Little About the Junior U19 Program
This program is for rowers under the age of 19 looking to compete at various local, regional and national regattas.
The ERC Junior/Junior Development program offers young people access to structured and organized training, supporting personal and life skills development. At the Edmonton Rowing Club, we value respect, inclusiveness, teamwork and volunteerism.
ERC’s Junior/Junior Development program is based on the “Long Term Athlete Development” (LTAD) model created by Rowing Canada Aviron. LTAD consists of several training stages, including “Learn to Train”, “Train to Train” and “Learn to Compete”. As rowing is a ‘late entry sport’, most athletes will start at the “Learn to Train” stage regardless of their age. We highly recommend and encourage that all athletes do other physical activity while enrolled in any of the LTAD stages.
