The Rec program is the ideal program for people that wish to try a new sport, exercise and socialize in one of Calgary's most scenic areas. We try to have fun, gain fitness and motivate each other every practice! The Rec program offers variety as athletes will be able to row in different boat classes and allows athletes to race in a variety of local and regional regattas should they wish to. The motto of our practices is fun and fitness!
Lisa Kates is a Rowing Canada Aviron Level 3 certified coach who has been coaching at the CRC for 2 years. Coach Lisa's recreational group motto is fun and fitness. Lisa will change up your rowing combinations so that you get to row in a variety of boat classes and with different athletes each time.
Summer: Tues/Thurs 6:30pm - 8:30pm & Sunday 9:00am - 11:00am
Winter: Tues/Thurs 6:30pm - 8:30pm & one weekend time
Rec members having attained sufficient on and off-water skills are able to access club equipment at alternate times as well.
We ask that all members attend a CRC "Adult Learn to Scull" program before joining or have past on-water rowing experience.
A CRC annual membership is $615 dollars. Monthly memberships are available. Mandatory registration with Rowing Canada is either $16 or $70 (depending if you want to race) and a PFD is mandatory. They are available from Auto-Marine at a special price for CRC members (approx $140). Club PFD's are available for loan for a short time.
Membership is pro-rated $10/week from the May 1 season start. A $100 discount applies to members that have completed a Learn to Scull course in the past year.
Like many other sporting groups, CRC generates valuable funds by staffing bingo events (now non-smoking!). A full year member is required to assist at four bingos (of their choice) throughout the calendar year - or pay the $309 Bingo Waiver Fee.
Learn to Row Graduates
If you have completed a Learn to Row Course within the past year please complete the registration portion up until payment phase. At that point, STOP, email firstname.lastname@example.org. The club manager will then edit your invoice to reflect the Learn to Row discount.
