TRY-ROWING DAY AT ARGONAUT ROWING CLUB – JULY 17, 2022
The Argonaut Rowing Club in Toronto invites current or aspiring para-athletes to try rowing on Sunday, July 17, 2022.
Rowing is terrific for building strength and cardiovascular fitness, making it a great cross training pursuit or just an enjoyable way to be active. Rowing is a fully accessible sport as the equipment can be adapted to accommodate the individual needs of the athlete.
Being out on the water brings a sense of freedom and the focus it demands clears the mind. For those who join a crew, pulling together builds tremendous teamwork.
The Argonaut Rowing Club has welcomed para-athletes with a wide range of abilities and unique needs, including the parasport classifications P1, P2, and P3.
Try-it Day, hosted by our para-athletes and other friendly club members, is free and includes:
- The opportunity to hear from Paralympian Victoria Nolan about what rowing means to her
- A lesson on the rowing stroke starting on our rowing machines
- Continuing the lesson in a boat, dockside
- Light refreshments
- Time to experience being by the lake, at the club, and to have your questions answered
There will be 2 sessions – one from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and another from 12 to 1:30 p.m.
The club is located on the Toronto waterfront at 1225 Lake Shore Blvd W, Toronto, ON M6K 3C1
