The Burnaby Lake Rowing Club (BLRC) rows on the calm waters of Burnaby Lake, in Burnaby, BC - one of the best places to train in singles in North America. Juniors row alongside Senior and Masters athletes. The club hosts the Crofton House School and Sentinel Secondary rowing teams who row with the Burnaby Lake juniors during the off season.

Typical club rowing sessions run at 7:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, and at 8 a.m. on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. Afternoon rows are offered during the spring, summer and fall for all club members - days and times depend on the season and are posted on the club calendar. Spring (February - May) and Fall (mid-September-November) afternoons run from approximately 4pm to 6pm. During the summer, the afternoon rows shift to evenings and run from approximately 6pm to 8pm. Club rowing sessions are open to all club athletes. Schedule variances are posted on the homepage and club calendar.

The boathouse predominantly consists of singles and doubles. The focus of the club is to develop elite skills in fine singles.

If you are competent in a 1x and are interested in joining the club to improve your skills, please contact the club captain or coach for the best time to come down.
