Program Summary

2020 SNRC FALL PROGRAMS

2020 Youth Recreational League – Fall

The Youth Recreational League (Train to Train) is for youth coming out of our summer Sculling Development or Train to Train programs who are wanting to continue to get some physical exercise with others and enjoy the sport of rowing in a more relaxed atmosphere. This program is also for youth with competitive rowing experience who are unable to commit to a full training schedule as part of our Youth Competitive/Development program.  Participants will be grouped together by experience level and train in single sculls and/or pre-scheduled doubles. Our focus is on athletes gaining rowing knowledge, skill development, and fitness at their own pace 3 nights per week. All participants in this program should already have some previous sculling experience from any of our past programs or have some other previous sculling experience. All participants should also be proficient rowing a single sculling shell. For those who do not have previous single sculling shell experience we would recommend our Fall Learn to Row/Sculling Development Program.

If you have any questions about your previous experience and starting point, please contact our Club Programs Manager to discuss if this program is suitable for you. Please email our Club Programs Manager for enrollment reservation prior to completing registration. Enrollment in this program is limited and reservations will have a 24 hr expiry date, and then will be available for the next email request.

Niagara YMCA’s have SNRC form for “Swim to Survive” test (front roll entry, tread water 1 min, swim 50m, put on PFD).  SNRC can also make arrangements to conduct a swim test at the club if participants are unable to find a location to perform a swim test due to COVID related closures.
