National Training Centre and Facilities Strategy Review

Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) is committed to achieving its vision of being recognized as a consistent world leading rowing nation and medal winning sport in Canada. To achieve this vision and as outlined in the RCA Strategic Plan, RCA has partnered with the Sport Law & Strategy Group to conduct a review of its National Training Centre and Facilities Strategy. 

RCA communicated an update on its Facilities and NTC short-term plan to membership last November. This update outlined the intention to partner with an independent consultant firm to complete an environmental scan and consultation process to assist in the generation of RCA’s long-term (10 year) Facilities and NTC Strategy. This independent consultation will further assist to inform the decision making process for the location of the National Team’s training environments in the lead up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
