This year ROWONTARIO member clubs can sign up for a spot in the Get Out On The Water campaign and promote their club! This is a province wide Try-It Day campaign, aiming to increase awareness about free open house events for clubs. We want to help grow your sport and get new people through your door!

Signing up for the campaign will get your club’s event listed on the website, as well as:

– Access to training presentations based on topics such as Marketing, First Contact with Participants, Liability & Insurance, and Follow Up Techniques,

– Poster templates,

– Fully produced radio ads,

– School Letters,

– Liability Waivers,

– An easy to use follow up tool,

– T-Shirts,

– One-on-one assistance with the program manager, and

– Much more!

The Try-It Day season was kicked off this past Victoria Day long weekend with a successful event at the Scarborough Bluffs Sailing Club! The sailing club SOLD OUT their Learn to Sail program and signed on new club members! We are anticipating many more success stories throughout this spring season from the more than 90 Try-It Day events!

Visit for more information on what the public will be seeing as a new marketing phase has been launched to promote Rowing across Ontario. With a provincial wide date having been decided on June 20th you still have time to join and participate on the date of your choice.

It’s not too late to sign up, promote your club’s event, and take advantage of this must sought after program! Contact Stephanie today at 905-572-7245 ext 225 or
