The Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Association was formed to organize and run the Canadian Secondary Schools Rowing Championships. The founding members were Claude Saunders, Doug Wells, Harry Kaysmith, Norm Adams, Dr. Tice and Alec Champion.

After a very long 3-year gap due to the COVID pandemic, we are ready to welcome back hundreds of high school athletes from across Canada, the US & other countries. It’s been too long since coaches, cheering families, friends, community partners, esteemed sponsors, vendors and our team of dedicated volunteers all gathered together on Henley Island for the most exciting race of the season! – Kristen Ott-Rogers, Board President
