Row To Podium

Row to Podium is Canada’s official talent identification and development program for rowing. Our goal is to mold new athletes into future Olympic and Paralympic Champions. Row to Podium was designed specifically to find tall, young and fit athletes with no experience in rowing.

As part of this program, the WIFC has been selected to host our monthly training camps where targeted athletes are gathered from across Ontario, as well as athletes from Manitoba, Quebec and the Maritimes to be 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 our camps with its flat, long-distance waterway and brand new training venue, including the rowing tank, on the North Course.  ROWONTARIO and Rowing Canada Aviron are very happy with our continuing partnership with the WIFC enabling us to provide a top quality venue to train and assess our future Olympians.
