Start Your Own Club

Is your region without a rowing club? Does your community have an interest in rowing and a suitable venue for a club? If so, Row Ontario can help you through the process of starting a club in your area.

We will walk you through the steps to incorporation and assist in developing the policies required to be approved for Row Ontario membership, and in turn membership with Rowing Canada Aviron.

First Steps:

  • Make sure the location you have in mind is available for a rowing club to utilize and the body of water is suitable for rowing.
  • Identify at least three individuals (non-related) who are willing to volunteer and take on the legal responsibilities of being a Director of a new incorporated organization.

Once you’ve completed your first steps, reach out to us for more information and support!
