As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak rapidly evolves in Canada, we are all now facing significant and unique challenges. These are exceptionally difficult times and our number one priority is the health and well-being of our rowing community.
Working with RCA Chief Medical Officer Dr. Mike Wilkinson and informed by the Canadian Sport Medicine Advisory Committee, we continue to closely monitor the situation. We encourage our member organizations to remain informed through regular updates from health authorities and other governing agencies within their jurisdiction.
The RCA office, located in the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence (PISE), is currently closed. Staff are working remotely and are accessible via email and phone.
We are updating our online events listing as regattas, workshops, and special events are cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19. Please refer to our Events page for more information.
