How This Project Will Assist In Promoting & Develop Amateur Sport
This training centre will greatly enhance the quality and year round availability of programming offered to the SNRC membership and will also provide additional training facilities that will be available for both the RowOntario and Rowing Canada athletes that train in Welland. In providing quality training facilities for our athletes this will serve to promote a positive experience with the sport and encourage continued participation and development in the sport. In addition to developing athletes, this facility will provide further opportunities for developing and training coaches which is absolutely critical to growing the sport of rowing. Overall, this facility will allow SNRC to provide one of the top learning and development centres for rowing in Canada which not only increase awareness of the sport but will feed into the provincial and national programs.
