The Welland International Flatwater Centre North Course will host another Row to Podium training camp September 13th and September 14th, attracting approximately 30 athletes from across Canada.
Row to Podium is one of Canada’s official talent identification and development program for rowing. Their goal is to mold new athletes into future Olympic and Paralympic Champions. As part of this program, the Welland International Flatwater Centre (WIFC) has been selected to host monthly Row to Podium training camps where targeted athletes are gathered from across Ontario, as well as athletes from Manitoba, Quebec, and the Maritimes. They are assessed and monitored as they continue along the High Performance pathway, with the goal of representing Canada on the international stage. The WIFC provides the ideal training venue for the camps with its flat, long-distance waterway and brand new training venue, including the rowing tank, on the North Course. The WIFC is thrilled with this continuing partnership with ROWONTARIO and Rowing Canada Aviron.
The next Row to Podium training camp runs October 11th and 12th. It is just one of the many events taking place at the WIFC that extend the use of the facility outside the summer event season, as the WRCC transitions for winter use of the Centre and tank with community training programs.
