Fall Program Registration

It's hard to believe, but Fall is just a few weeks away. Registration is now open for all Fall Programs.

Exciting news - no more forms or registration events! All aspects of the registration process can now be completed online. Detailed instructions and the link to the Rowing Canada (RCA) website can be found at: 

https://micmacrowingclub.wordpress.com/register-for-a-program/

The Adult Master's Competitive Program runs through until October 31, so no further action is required for participants of that program.

Participants in ALL OTHER JUNIOR AND ADULT PROGRAMS must register for a Fall program in order to continue rowing past the end of August.

Please review the options below and speak with a Coach or one of the Registrars if you have any questions, or would prefer to pay by cash or cheque.

Thank you everyone for a great summer season so far, and looking forward to rowing with you in the Fall!
