Rowing Canada Aviron – Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) is pleased to announce the selections of the Junior, U23, U21, FISU and CanAmMex teams representing Canada this summer on the international stage. 

Athletes were selected based performances at the 2018 Speed Orders – National Team Trials event from June 21-30 in London, Ontario.
“We’re excited for the squad of athletes selected for racing opportunities this summer,” said Adam Parfitt, RCA Director, Coach and Athlete Pathways.  “It’s a mix of returning champions and athletes new to international racing. Athletes went through a vigorous week of selection to earn their spots on this list and it’s our hope that future Olympians and World Champions will emerge.”
Canadian rowers will compete at the following international events this summer:

CanAmMex –  July 8-14 – Mexico City
World Rowing Under 23 Championships – July 25-29 – Poznan, Poland
World Rowing Junior Championships – August 8-12 – Racice, Czech Republic
FISU World University Championships – August 10-12 – Shanghai, China
U21 Trans-Tasman Series – August 23-25 – Karapiro, New Zealand

In support of Next Gen athletes, RCA has launched the 2018 #RCANextGen fundraising campaign to reduce fees associated with international competition. For the second year running, RCA aims to ensure that athletes do not face financial barriers to represent Canada on the world stage. Last year, Canadians generously contributed to the campaign, and raised over $37,000 for two NextGen teams. In 2018, we have expanded to support these five outstanding Next Gen teams!
