Jenna Osborne – Club Operations Coordinator

Hi! I’m Jenna, SNRC’s new club coordinator. My rowing journey began in 2011 at Sir Winston Churchill. I continued to excel in the sport at Brock University, both as an athlete and as a coach for various programs, including Brock Masters Winter Training and Summer Sculling Camps. Some of my notable achievements include winning the CSSRA in the Senior Women’s 4+, securing silver twice at the OUAs in the Open Women’s 4+ and 8+, and earning bronze at the CURCs in the Open Women’s 8+. Currently, I am pursuing a PhD in Applied Health Sciences at Brock University, focusing on the benefits of physical activity on women’s health and wellness.

Carley Couroux – Lead Adult Coach

I started rowing in 2017 my grade 9 year at Welland Centennial and have loved the sport ever since! This will be my 5th year coaching with SNRC, the family atmosphere created at the club keeps reeling me in every year.   I’m Currently a 3rd year student at Brock University in the Physical Education program. With teaching Phys Ed I’m hoping to inspire girls to continue pursuing their passions with sport through high-school and create a good relationship with  movement to promote life long movers. I bring the same passion to my coaching because rowing is a sport that you can find success in at any age!
Johnathan Michaud – Lead Development Coach
Sarah Fuller – Senior Coach

My name is Sarah and I started rowing with SNRC in 2011 and have been involved with the club ever since, either as an athlete or a coach! I have been coaching for SNRC since 2015 and have become very passionate about Masters rowing in the last 6 years. I switched to coaching adults when I realized most of the focus in the rowing world was solely on high school rowing and university rowing, and that there was little to no coaching for adults across Canada. I saw this as a missed opportunity, as rowing is a sport that you can do well into your 70s, 80s, and 90s! SNRC supported this idea to build up our Masters group to make this club a place where you can row recreationally or competitively at any age! I’ve always loved the forgotten underdog, so Masters rowing is close to my heart. Not to mention the added complexity of handicaps to race strategy! As a coach, I love constantly pushing the athletes out of their comfort zone so come race day, they will be prepared no matter what! Additionally, I love coaching athletes at any skill level: newbie, intermediate, or expert and find coaching across a wide range of abilities teaches me just as much as hopefully I teach them!

Sierra Humphries – Senior Coach

I started rowing with SNRC in 2016 and have been coaching at SNRC since 2020. I started coaching because I have a passion for teaching and being able to combine that with my experience as a rower was an exciting opportunity! I enjoy coaching because I love to build relationships with the athletes and I enjoy working with them to improve their technique and reach their personal goals! Watching them grow from their first day of Learn to Row all the way to their first race is always so exciting!
Jacob Gula – Senior Coach
Jake Janzen – Senior Coach

Wilder Fulford – Senior Coach

I started rowing with my school team when I was thirteen and just beginning at Westminster School in London, England. I quickly fell in love with the hard work and the resulting improvement as well as the exhilaration of being on the water. My crewmates quickly became my best friends, bonded by the struggle of learning to row on the choppy Thames. Some of them, with me, stuck with the sport all the way, racing together at Henley Royal Regatta in our final year of school, making the semi-final, and now we are all rowing in varsity college programs in the US. To this day, they are my best friends. I myself have just finished my second year rowing at Stanford University, where I have raced in the varsity and the second varsity in duals and at nationals, with rowers of a wide range of ages, from eighteen to twenty three, who have come as recruits from all over the world. I love rowing and have learned lessons on the water and from coaches that could never be taught in the classroom by teachers. I hope to pass on some of the things I am so grateful to have learned in rowing in this next step in my life in the sport, my first stretch of coaching.
