Click here to read a coaches recap of last week's athletic achievements from our Irish wrestlers, rowers, and basketball players!
Rowing is a real team sport with high expectations in terms of physical fitness and commitment to the crew. At Vancouver College, our mission is to provide the opportunity for students to learn to row, experience a high level of competition, and take pride in becoming part of a team.
The program consists of approximately 45 athletes from grades 8-12 rowing at the Novice, Junior Varsity and Varsity levels. The season starts in November with land training at the school and then moves to False Creek in the spring. The athletes attend regattas on both the Mainland and Vancouver Island. Each year, selected crews attend the National Championships held in St. Catharines, Ontario where a number of past VC crews have proven very successful.
Besides competing at the high school level a number of our graduates have gone on to row at top universities and represent Canada internationally.
