Tuesday, June 13, 2017 – RCA announced today the selection of 10 athletes for this year’s Junior National Team for the World Rowing Junior Championships. The Junior National Team is made up of rowers under the age of 19 and come from eight rowing clubs across the country.
On Friday, RCA launched the RCA All for One fundraising campaign, supporting the Under-23 and Junior teams as they prepare for the 2017 World Rowing Championships. The goal of this campaign is to raise funds that will go directly to reducing any fees that athletes face when representing Canada.
Donations can be made at www.fundrazr.com/RCAallforone either to the Under-23 team, Junior team or both, with funds directly reducing the costs for athletes. To show your support of the athletes and the campaign via social media, post #RCAAllForOne on your Facebook or Twitter.
Following the selection trials in Welland, Ontario, RCA has confirmed the list of athletes representing Canada on the Junior National Team this summer. Coaches will be announced at a later date.
