The Lakehead University Rowing Club is a program designed to develop a competitive rowing crew at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay, Ontario. 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 had a successful first year of rowing competing at the Canadian University Rowing Championships in Victoria BC, Head of the Trent in Peterborough, Ontario, and Head of Red, in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

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.

Please note, as with all clubs, that participants are expected to contribute financially to club operations and will have expenses associated with travel and competition. The club dues for this year are $100.00 per athlete.
