Masters

The Edmonton Rowing Club Masters program welcomes all athletes over the age of 27 who are interested in training to improve fitness and rowing skill, but are no longer able to put in the time to be in the competitive rowing program.

Training 

We train throughout the year. From May to October training is usually on the river. We have sessions throughout the week in the afternoon. From November to April we train inside. Indoor training is done primarily on ergometers with some use of the rowing tank. There are 6 coached workouts per week, but there is no expectation for rowers to attend every session.

Regattas

The ERC mainly competes in the Prairie provinces but does attend regattas in BC as well as Royal Canadian Henley in St. Catharines, ON. ERC Masters rowers have also competed internationally at events such as Head of the Charles, Royal Henley, and the World Masters Games.

Memberships 

As part of your membership, the ERC requires all master members to work four bingo shifts over the year. If you do not want to work them, you can pay them out. Additionally, in order to maintain our operations, programs, and services we require our masters members to do thirty volunteer hours at the Club. You have the entire year to fulfill these obligations. 

If you are interested in joining the ERC Masters program please contact Camil Teodorescu (camilteo@hotmail.com).
