Development Camp (Mill Bay)

August 8, 2021 - August 11, 2021


Development Camp (Mill Bay)

Rowing BC, with support from Brentwood College School Rowing, will be hosting a Development Camp at Brentwood College School August 8-11, 2021. This is an opportunity to train alongside other top performing athletes with similar performance goals.

The general schedule of the camp will be as follows:

Two camp streams will be available:

  1. BC Summer Games Preparation Stream: Intended for athletes with the goal of representing their Zone at the 2022 BC Summer Games (must be either U17 or U19 as of December 31, 2022). Athletes from all Zones are encouraged to engage in this early preparation opportunity to become familiar with the race expectations of the BC Summer Games.
  2. Canada Summer Games Preparation Stream: Intended for athletes with the goal of representing BC at the 2021 Canada Summer Games (must be U21 as of December 31, 2021) which were postponed due to the pandemic, and will now be held in Summer 2022. This is an opportunity to train alongside other athletes performing at a high level, and benefit from world-class coaching and facilities.

Athletes will be divided during on-water sessions based on the stream they have signed up to train with. Mental Performance Sessions will be provided for all streams of camp participants. These sessions will be led by experts provided by the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific. On-water sessions will be coached by:

  • Rob Richards – Rowing BC Provincial Head Coach
  • Martin George – Rowing BC Provincial Para Coach and Manager of Coach Education & Inclusion
  • Stacy Mitchell – Head Coach, Salt Spring Island Rowing Club and Rowing BC President
  • Brent Duncan – Acting Head of Rowing, St. George’s School

The camp cost is all inclusive – covering coaching, equipment, meals, accommodation and workshops. Athletes are required to arrange their own transportation to and from the camp.
