The Manitoba Rowing Association had yet another successful Winter Rowing Camp February 10 – 23, 2015 in Victoria, British Columbia. Rowing out of the Victoria Rowing Club, eight rowers went with Antony Patterson, Manitoba Head Coach, to train for the 13 day experience. Intense training included being on the water up to three times per day throughout the Winter Camp, gaining exceptional experience on the water with our talented Head Coach.

With the water being frozen for our cold Manitoba winters, the Manitoba Rowing Association has developed winter training camps and training regimes for all levels of our athletes. The winter camps allow for junior and senior level athletes to test their skills with the Manitoba Head Coach, gain experience while rowing with some of the country’s very best. National team coaches were on site throughout this year’s camp to help develop both Manitoba athletes and our Head Coach. A great learning and athletic experience for everyone who went on this year’s Winter Camp in Victoria.
