Athletes

Welcome to the Manitoba Rowing Association! Here you will find everything you need to know about how you can get involved in the sport of rowing!

Rowing has a long and proud tradition in Winnipeg. Since 1881, athletes have been learning to row on the waters of the mighty Red River. Today, we support four clubs: two in Winnipeg (Winnipeg Rowing Club, Prairie Fire Rowing Club), one in Pinawa (Pinawa Rowing Club) and one in Kenora, Ontario (Kenora Rowing Club).

Whether you want to learn to row, join a recreational rower, or pursue competitively, you’ve come to the right place. The Manitoba Rowing Association will help guide you to the right program and club for you and your needs. The Manitoba Rowing Assocation supports the Provincial Team, which competes at the Canada Summer Games and the Western Canada Summer Games. In addition, we have a top-notch High Performance Program lead by 2012 Olympic Silver Medalist, Janine Stephens. Our fleet of shells and experienced coaches will help you find your glide, so you can enter the sport at your own pace – and stay with it at whatever level you choose.
