Some Frequently Asked Questions.
Your club seems quite far away. Is there transportation too and from the lake?
Absolutly! Our club is only 25 minutes from the city centre however, many of our club members choose to take advantage of our daily carpooling. For only $3 you can hitch a ride with one of our coaches or voluteers, round trip from the Rogers Way Petro-Canada in Aberdeen. For details, departure and arrival times please Contacts Us.
When and for how long does your season run?
Our season typically runs from the beginning of May to the middle of October. We offer 3 options for memberships. All of our options allow you to row throughout the entire season. Our Full Season membership is our "all-access pass" to participate all year long with absolutely no restrictions!
Maybe your busy schedule doesn't allow you to row on a regular bases? That's okay; our other two options ensure you're getting the most for your money, and on your own schedule. Choose between either a 15-Row Punch Card or a 10-Row Punch Card.
Do I need to have experience to join the club?
Not at all! All skill levels are welcome in our club.
Do I need any equipment in order to join the club?
The only thing you need to join the club is a pair of shorts, a gym shirt and maybe a water bottle. All boats, oars, life jackets, and rowing machines are provided by the club.
Do I need to be a good swimmer to take rowing lessons?
You need to be a confident swimmer in deep water and can swim 50 metres nonstop. You also need to be 15 years of age as we have heavy boats that are carried by our rowing crews and out equipment must be appropriately sized relative to your height and weight in order to be rowed safely.
