We are looking for youth, aged under 19 and under 17 for the races that will be held. There is a selection process to be selected to represent our Zone. We have had athletes from other disciplines learn to row and compete at the summer games: skiers, swimmers, dancers, parkour, barrel racer, basketball players, volleyball players.

We have had rowers from Nelson RC and Rockies RC on the summer games rowing crews. The selection process will include interested rowers from all 3 clubs in Zone 1, Nelson RC, Lake Windermere RC and Rockies RC.
