GOLD Medal Pathway Program

The Rowing BC GOLD Medal Pathway Program (formerly known as the BC Athlete Assistance Program) is a financial assistance program targeted at performance focused rowers and coaches. Funding is allocated to support athlete and coach expenses associated with training and competition at national and international competitions.

Information about the 2019 program and application process will be posted here when it becomes available.
