The Burnaby Lake Rowing Club (BLRC) rows on the calm waters of Burnaby Lake, in Burnaby, BC - one of the best places to train singles in North America. The mission of the club is to develop elite level skills in fine racing singles while also promoting a sense of independence in the athlete. To this end, Juniors row alongside Senior and Masters. The club hosts the Crofton House School and Sentinel Secondary rowing teams who row with the Burnaby Lake juniors during the off season. The Burnaby Lake site also hosts RCA and SFU rowing programs.
Typical club rowing sessions run at 7:30am midweek, and at 8:00am on weekends 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 4:15pm to 6:15pm. Club rowing sessions are open to all club athletes. Schedule variances are posted on the club calendar.
The boathouse predominantly consists of singles and doubles with a focus on development of athletes through Senior levels of rowing and beyond.
