Our core group is masters (age 21 and up) who enjoy rowing on a regular scheduled basis, most months of the year. Individual priorities include training for speed and efficiency, continuing development of skill and technique, improving fitness, and enjoying a fun and positive environment. Training and competing at regattas, both sprint and head races, is supported by our coaches and club. Review our programs here.
FLCRC is a proud member of Rowing BC and Rowing Canada Aviron.
Join Us - Let's Go Rowing
New-to-rowing potential members first need to participate in a "Learn to Row" course, learning the basics of rowing, having an opportunity to practice out on the water, and develop basic skills before joining our regular club programs.
NOVICE rowing is next - an opportunity to develop your newly acquired skills, or get the rust off if you haven't rowed in a long while - with particular attention paid to increasing skill development and confidence.
Experienced rowers are welcome to join our club. Learn more here about our membership details.
Fort Langley Community Rowing Club was officially incorporated under the Societies Act of British Columbia in February 2011 by a group of rowers who have been rowing in Fort Langley for several years.
