First of all, I would like to say thank you to everyone for your patience while we were organizing the rowing programs for this year. We are introducing a few changes this year, and it took a bit longer to get the programs up and running. However, registration for Learn to Row, Novice, Junior Varsity, and Competitive Varisty is now open! You can find more information about all of these programs in the registration package below. Please note that the Learn to Row and Novice Programs do have a cap on the number of people who can register, so be sure to register early to ensure that you get a spot!
Thank you again for your patience, and as always please do not hesitate to reach out should you have any questions or concerns. We hope to see you on the water soon!
We hope that you have all had a wonderful summer and are now getting excited about the 2019-2020 season, it is going to be a great one!
The registration package will be released very soon so please stay tuned for that. For anyone looking to join varsity this year (junior or competitive) we encourage you to register for training camp. Training camp is being held from August 31st-September 2nd, and more information can be found under the varsity tab.
See you soon tigers!

On October 31st and November 1st, 2015, the Canadian University Rowing Championships (CURC) was held, for the first time ever, East of the Olympic Basin in Montreal and came to Lochaber, Nova Scotia. This historic event, hosted by St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, brought rowing crews from across the country to the East Coast to battle for the title of Men’s and Women’s Canadian University Champions.
Dal made some impressive finishes, finishing ahead of our Atlantic Rivals, St. FX, in all but one of our races. Some notable races include:

For a full list of results in both the time trials (October 31) and the finals (November 1), head on over to our results page: https://dalrowing.com/results/. Congratulations to the University of Western Ontario, who took home both the Men’s and Women’s Championship titles this year. In overall points totals, Dal’s men finished 12th and Dal’s women finished 9th out of the 22 participating universities.
Dalhousie is extremely proud of all its athletes, who have trained so hard throughout the season. We will be training even harder over the winter and through the summer so we can come out even stronger next season.
Row NS posted the winners of the RICOH sport awards yesterday and among the winners was our very own former Dalhousie Rowing Club president, Rachel Mays. Rachel won the Volunteer of the Year award and there is no one more deserving of this honour than her. Her hard work, dedication and sacrifice helped to build this team and has now been recognized at the provincial level. Congratulations Rachel.
