If you would like to row, row, row your boat gently down Wascana Creek, you’re in luck.


The U of R Rowing Club is looking to add members and find the next generation of provincial, national, and Olympic rowing champions. As such, they will be holding information sessions from Jan. 18-20 in the U of R’s Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies building 166. The sessions on Tuesday, Jan. 18 and Wednesday, Jan. 19 are scheduled for 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. On Thursday, Jan. 20, the session runs 3 p.m. to 4 p.m.


At the sessions, information will be provided about a Rowing Canada Aviron talent identification event that is to be held at the U of R on Sunday Jan. 23.


The information sessions are for those who are considering trying rowing and would like more information on the sport. There is no experience necessary to attend.


To register for any information session, contact Garett at rowing@uregina.ca
