The Maple Bay junior rowing program is open to boys and girls ages 13-18 (with some exceptions for 12yr olds). The main objectives are to be safe, have fun, learn-to-row, develop team spirit and learn self-discipline. Our program is made up of students from schools throughout the Cowichan Valley
The junior program rows year-round.
The spring season is the busy regatta season, after a short break over Christmas we come back with a little more intensity and commitment. We attend seven major island regattas’, including our own. We also attend the annual Delta Deas Regatta on the mainland at the end of the season. We have, in the past, sent some of our top rowers to the Canadian High School Rowing Championships in Ontario.
In the summer we offer week-long junior learn-to-row camps which are a great place to get started if you are thinking of joining the program in Sept. The camps allow you to first try the sport out and second give you a huge jump start on the fall program.
