The Lakehead University Rowing Club is a new addition this year and is a program designed to develop a competitive rowing crew at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. The club has been approved by Lakehead University, the Canadian University Rowing Association, and Rowing Canada Aviron to compete as a collegiate team. The crew in question will have the opportunity to train locally, compete against other Canadian and American Universities, and hone their abilities in a supportive team atmosphere. Lakehead University previously had a rowing club out of their Orillia campus, and it is the hope of the LURC to bring back this wonderful sport.
As a city, Thunder Bay has had a long history of success in sports, and much of that success can be attributed to the students at Lakehead University. It is the hope of the Lakehead Rowing Club that Lakehead University could begin to show that strong athletic spirit in rowing competitions. The Thunder Bay Rowing Club is very supportive and is willing to provide the training grounds for such a club on the Kaministiqua river.
