Rowing PEI was born in response to the exciting opportunity of the 2009 Canada Summer Games being hosted on home soil; two athletes competed for Team PEI Rowing that first year.  In 2010, thanks to a starter kit from Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA), Rowing PEI was officially created, based out of the Charlottetown Yacht Club.

 

In 2013 and 2017, Rowing PEI competed at the Canada Summer Games with a team of ten in Sherbrooke and a team of six in Kenora, respectively.  In both cases, Rowing PEI was granted an exemption from the Canada Games Council to allow the teams to compete without a coach who possessed the required RCA Performance Coach qualifications.

 

Looking ahead to the 2021 Canada Summer Games, the Rowing PEI Board of Directors has agreed to identify an RCA Performance Coach-level coach to lead the team to the Games in St. Catharines.  Because there is little opportunity to develop a local PEI coach to that level, Rowing PEI has partnered with ROWONTARIO to assist in recruiting an Ontario-based coach to lead Team PEI to the 2021 Canada Summer Games.

 

This position is an opportunity that supports ROWONTARIO’s commitment to coach mentorship and professional development.  ROWONTARIO is also excited for the opportunity for partnership, mentorship, and development at the organizational level. 

 

Please refer to the Rowing PEI Coaching Opportunity document, for application information.
