For the past six years, Rowing Canada Aviron, with the support from Sport Canada, has been developing iRow youth club programs focused on building awareness and increasing grassroots participation of rowing among youth.

Since the program’s inception, Rowing Canada Aviron has distributed almost $250,000 in funds to over 40 clubs across Canada.

The following five clubs have been awarded the iRow grants for 2015:

St. Catharines Rowing Club, ON

St. Michaels University School Community Rowing Centre, BC

South Cariboo Rowing Club, BC

Club d’Aviron de Terrebonne, QC

Thunderbird Rowing Centre, BC

Each club received $2500 towards their iRow youth programs. This program is designed to promote youth rowing in the schools and in communities, to encourage coach education, and to mentor young athletes with the hopes of instilling all of the key skills necessary in order to develop and grow as rowers.

Rowing Canada Aviron would like to thank Sport Canada for this opportunity.
