Ontario Ergometer Championships Come to Ridley College on Feb. 29

The 34th annual Ontario Ergometer Championships are right around the corner and will be hosted at Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ont. on Saturday, Feb. 29.

In addition to the standard indoor action, this year’s event will feature a mixed team relay for both junior and senior athletes for the first time in history. Each rower will complete a 500m leg before ‘passing the baton’ to their teammate in what figures to be a fast-paced and exciting event. Also on a tap is a mid-event open discussion with Niagara HUB coach Greg Szybka, who will discuss technique and what it takes to be a high-level rower. This is a great opportunity for rowers and parents to ask questions to a high-level coach and learn more about the sport.

As always, new Concept 2 machine are being brought in for the event and will be sold at the end of the regatta. This year’s price is again $1250/machine and a limited number our available. Please contact Nancy Storrs at nstorrs@yahoo.com for sales. To purchase a Concept 2 machine, you will be required to provide your full name, address, phone number and email, and you are able to pay via cheque or e-transfer. Cheques should be made out to Ridley Graduate Boat Club and be payable before Feb. 23 in order to clear before the event. Contact Nancy for more details.
