The ELC rowing team is one of the biggest teams in the school and is one of those unique teams or sports that many students have never tried before entering school. Here is your chance to "dip your toes into the water" by participating in the Crossley novice winter training program that prepares rowers for the spring racing season. The winter training program has been a big part of the Crossley rowing success and is done in a coed, fun atmosphere that empowers you to improve your physical and mental well being. The novice winter training program runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school here from 2.15-4pm. Everyone is invited and included simply by coming out and participating with the team. No previous experience is required, nor does it matter what your current fitness level is- we build you up gradually "slow and steady wins the race". THERE WILL BE A SHORT INFORMATION MEETING AT LUNCHTIME TODAY IN ROOM 318.

When Crossley Rowing does hit the water, it is done through the Notre Dame Rowing Club on the Welland Canal in Welland- one of the best training sites in North America and very close to ELC. The rowing club is hosting try row days the next two Saturdays from 11am-1pm at the rowing club. Come down and give the sport a try and get a taste of what the sport is like. The try row days are hosted by the Notre Dame rowing club which is our host club and houses all of the equipment. Weather looks great. Get more info at TODAYS lunchtime meeting
