2017 Canada Summer Games 

The 2017 Canada Summer Games were held in Winnipeg, Manitoba, from July 28 to August 14, 2017. The Canada Summer Games occur every four years, and are aimed to introduce athletes to a national level competition in a multi-sport games environment. The Canada Summer Games are meant to develop athletes, coaches, and officials to their potential, or to serve as step along the pathway to a U-23 or Senior National Team.

Manitoba Rowing sends a maximum of 30 athletes to the Canada Summer Games:

  • 14 athletes of each gender, plus:
  • two coxswains of either gender

To be eligible for the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games, this means each athlete must be born no earlier than January 1, 1999 (this ruling also applies to coxswains).

The athlete must show dedication to the training program, and must be members in Good Standing of one of the following rowing clubs:
