Registration for the 2023 Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) National Conference and Semi-Annual Meeting is now open!
Let’s Open the Doors Wider by expanding our thinking as leaders and seizing opportunities with energy and engagement.
The two-day annual conference will be held at the Delta Hotel (Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort) in Victoria, BC from January 27 to 28, 2023. There is something for all leaders in our sport, with 4 streams offered: Coaches, Rowing For All, Thriving Organizations, and the new Junior Stream.
You asked, we listened! Judy Riege is returning to the RCA National Conference to help us kick things off with a keynote session on Friday, ‘Better: Creators Wanted’. Judy will help set the stage for the rest of the conference, prompting us to lean in and learn so as a community we will work together to be better, with energy and through engagement.
Cody Royle is joining us to deliver the keynote: ‘Coaches Are Performers, Too’, to inspire our coaches to approach their coaching with a performance mindset for themselves and how leaders can support coach development within their organization.
During the ‘Future of Safe Sport’ keynote, Allison Forsyth will speak to the direction where Safe Sport is headed in Canada and what we can all do to be part of creating a safe and healthy environment for all participants.
We have returning events such as the RegattaCentral Wine and Cheese on January 27 and the RCA Excellence Awards evening taking place on January 28, and we have built in several opportunities to connect with the rowing community outside of conference sessions.
Virtual sessions offered at no cost to registrants will be held on Tuesday January 24 and will be announced soon.
The Semi-Annual Meeting will take place on January 29.
Conference delegates are welcome to join us early on Thursday, January 26 before the conference officially begins to visit the site of the National Training Centre.
