Rowing BC Provincial Team Eligibility – 2023 NRC

General Information 

The 2023 RCA National Rowing Championships will be held September 28 to October 1st in Duncan, BC at the National Training Center on Quamichan Lake.

The purpose of the NRC is to determine and crown National Champions in the sport of rowing in Canada. The regatta shall also afford the opportunity for athletes to recognize the accomplishments of their peers. The NRC shall facilitate National Team athletes to “re-connect” with their home club. More information about the regatta, including the technical packages and bulletins can be found here. 

The 2023 NRC is an opportunity for athletes to meet the requirements for RCA AAP selection and to be identified for support in 2024 by Rowing BC and the Canadian Sports Institute Pacific.
