A Little About the Masters Rowing Program
– – – – –
The Masters program trains throughout the year. From May to October, training is usually on the river. We have sessions throughout the week offered both in the morning and in the afternoon. From November to April, training is indoors. Indoor training is offered at our training facility and primarily consists of workouts on the ergometers and the rowing tank. There are six (6) coached workouts per week, but there is no expectation for rowers to attend every session.
The ERC mainly competes and participates in regattas located in the Prairie provinces. We do attend regattas in British Columbia and have attended the Royal Canadian Henley in St. Catharines, Ontario. ERC Masters rowers have also competed internationally at events including the Head of the Charles in Boston, MA, the Royal Canadian Henley, and the World Masters Games.
As part of your membership, the ERC requires all master members to work four bingo shifts over the year. If you do not want to work them, you can pay them out. Additionally, in order to maintain our operations, programs, and services we require our Masters members to do thirty volunteer hours at the Club. You have the entire year to fulfill these obligations.
