Rowing PEI is excited to launch a new indoor rowing program called I-Crew or Indoor Crew, for youth between the ages of 12 and 17.Crew members will learn technique, stay fit and take part in fun challenges during the weekly sessions.
 

A highlight will be Indoor Rowing Day in Canada 2023 when everyone across the country teams up to see how many kilometres we can log on the same day.

I-Crew kicks into gear in November, with a break for the holidays, then continues until the end of March.

Part 1: Sunday November 6 – Sunday December 11, 2022

Part 2: Sunday January 8 – Sunday February 18, 2023 *Canada Games break

Part 3: Sunday March 5 – Sunday April 2, 2023

The program will be offered by trained coaches from Rowing PEI at Kinetic Fitness, 133 Queen Street in downtown Charlottetown.

Participants should wear workout clothes including narrow sneakers. No baggy shorts that can get caught in the sliding seat.

Please bring a water bottle!

The program will be offered in English.

*There is also an adult version of I-Crew. Contact organizers for more information on that group. 

Thanks to Rowing Canada Aviron and Sport Canada for financial support for this new, exciting program.

Rowing is a great outdoor sport with fantastic scenery.  And it is considered one of the best workouts around!

Read more about the benefits of rowing: 
“When we said full-body, we weren’t kidding. There’s just no comparison to cardio exercise that only involves the lower body, such as biking, the elliptical machine, or running on a treadmill. This is a calorie-killing, efficient workout.”

If you are goal-oriented, there is also the opportunity for all ages to compete. We will have coached sessions to prepare crews for the Nova Scotia Sprints in July and the Atlantics in October.
There is also a regatta here on P.E.I. in August every year, on the Brudenell River!

 

Our coastal boats are made especially for the wind and wave conditions on the Harbour. We row out of the Charlottetown Yacht Club from May to October.
Intro to Rowing is your entry point to the wonderful sport of rowing! Whether you’re looking for a low impact, full body workout, a way to get out on the water, a chance to meet some great people or a combination, it all starts here.
No experience with water sports is needed and it is a great substitute for exercise after being in the gym all winter.
