RCA names 2021 National Junior Team

Wednesday July 7, 2021 – Victoria, BC

RCA is pleased to announce the athletes selected to represent Canada this summer at the World Rowing Junior Championships in Plovdiv, Bulgaria from August 11 to 15, 2021.

Team travel is contingent on a number of factors and considerations relating to the ongoing COVID-19 situation. The health and safety of all athletes and support staff is always paramount and therefore RCA will enact a number of safety protocols and pre-travel assessments to determine team travel and participation.

In support of the Junior athletes, RCA has launched a fundraising campaign to reduce fees associated with international competition and ensure that athletes do not face financial barriers to representing Canada on the world stage. To make a contribution and help Canada’s rowers focus on giving their all on the water, please visit fundrazr.com/2021RCAJUNIOR
