2016 Tryout Info

Hope everyone has been training and is ready for an awesome fall season!

Varsity/JV tryouts:

Anyone with prior competitive rowing experienced is encouraged to tryout for the varsity and junior varsity programs. Tryouts begin August 29 at the Olympic Basin in Montreal (more detailed directions can be found under the tab “Where We Train”). Tryouts run all week from 6-8 am (with potential afternoon practices as to be determined by coaches). The basin is accessible by bike, car, and metro. There will be a group leaving from McGill the 29th traveling by metro. Contact us for more info.

Novice tryouts:

Anyone without prior competitive rowing experience is encouraged to tryout for the novice program. This program is intended for hardworking prior high school athletes with the desire to try a new sport and with the eventual goal to feed into the varsity/JV program. There will be a meeting for everyone interested in novice rowing on September 6 at 6 pm in the Currie Gym (room TBD). Tryouts will begin the next morning (Sept. 7) at 6 am at the Olympic Basin. The team will be selected by Friday September 16. No prior rowing experience is expected or required, but athletes are expected to be in overall good athletic shape, and tryouts will test for fitness levels and coachability/attitude.

Get excited for the season, and see you at the basin!
