Thank You!

Thanks to all the athletes, coaches, parents, community supporters & volunteers!

WELCOME BACK

After 2 years without high school sports we are excited to welcome back High School rowers to our Henley course.

With the Olympic gold medal win by Canada’s women’s 8+, one just needs to take a quick look at the roster to find names that first appeared in high school crew boats that raced at the CSSRA Canadian Championships right here on Martindale Pond! Including Sir Winston Churchill’s Kristen Kit.

This year we celebrate our 75th anniversary of CSSRA racing, formerly known as School Boy. All former rowers of this regatta are invited to return to Henley Island for 75th anniversary celebrations. Saturday afternoon & evening there will be reunion events, music, food trucks & embellished reminiscing of glory days racing on Martindale Pond. The St Catharines Rowing Alumni Association are ready to welcome back alumni from Michigan, New York & former high school rowers from across Canada who are ready to celebrate their glory days.

Be a part of this exciting return to racing and welcome back former rowers, parents and future Olympians!

Linda Dirks, Past-President CSSRA
