U19 Competitive rowing sets an unparalleled standard for Junior rowing development. Rowers learn the art of rowing at the highest level while developing life-long leadership and team-building skills.
At ORC, we believe that rowing offers good health and fresh air, but in its best and highest expression, our sport builds essential relationships between people from all walks of life that would not be possible without the shared discipline of shells, oars, and water.
Our coaching staff includes award-winning coaches with decades of experience. Athletes will train and race in ORC’s fleet of shells. In addition to the expertise of our incredible coaching staff (with a 16/1 rower to coach ratio), ORC offers athletes the benefit of a registered dietician who will consult via seminars with teams and athletes, sharing his knowledge of healthy eating practices and effective fueling for athletics.
There will be a Spring Information Meeting for all ORC members on Wednesday, April 3, 2019 at Glebe High School beginning at 7pm. This meeting is open to all and is an excellent opportunity to learn about the ORC, our spring opening, our calendar of events, to meet our many coaches and members and more. There will also be a Spring Junior Parent Information Meeting on Saturday, May 4 at 9am at the Ottawa Rowing Club. This meeting is open to all junior rowers and their parents. This meeting is an excellent opportunity to learn about the spring rowing season, learn about upcoming regattas, training expectations, volunteer opportunities, and more. Highly recommended for all junior rowers and parents, particularly if you are new to the sport of rowing! As always, if you have questions before these meetings you can email firstname.lastname@example.org for answers.
