Our Program

A fun way to connect with other ONEC rowers who are interested in venturing off to some of Ontario's great distance regattas, or maybe you're looking for some coaching in your pursuit of the perfect rowing stroke. Either way, we'd love to have you come join us for our structured coached workouts.  The ONEC Masters program is open to everyone and all boat types are welcome.  Workouts will be roughly 1.5 hours including: dynamic dryland warm-up, coached row and debrief with stretching.



Tuesdays at 06:00 Thursdays at 06:00 

The ONEC Masters program uses the ONEC Rowing Club Calendar.  Look for upcoming practices and RSVP right in the Calendar.
