Junior (U19) ERC Program

The Edmonton Rowing Club Junior program welcomes all athletes under the age of 19 who are interested in training to improve fitness and rowing skill and take part in racing.

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.

ERC Junior/Junior development vision is to offer young men and women access to structured and organized sport program which promotes development and life skill training. At Edmonton Rowing Club we value respect, inclusiveness, team work, and voluntarism.

The ERC Junior/Junior development program follows the guideline of the “Long term athlete development” model created by Rowing Canada, for more information click here. Most of the members of our program will find themselves in the following stages “Learn to Train”, “Train to Train”, and “Learn to Compete”. As rowing is a late entry sport most of the athletes will start at the Learn to Train stage regardless of their age. We highly encourage that at all those stages the athletes do other physical activity.

Training

– – – – –

 The Junior program trains throughout the year. We have sessions throughout the week offered in the afternoon. From May to October, training is usually on the river, and 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. Depending on the time of year there are up to six (6) coached workouts per week, but there is no expectation for rowers to attend every session.  

Regattas

– – – – –

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 Junior rowers have also competed at the provincial level in Western Canada Summer Games, Canada Sumer Games, and National Rowing Championship.
