Ridley’s rowing teams participate in a variety of races and tournaments throughout the rowing season, including:
Annual Head Races, which includes the Head of the Charles Regatta in Boston
Weekly competitions in the spring leading to the Stotesbury Regatta in Philadelphia and the CSSRA championship on our home course in St. Catharines
Qualifying crews may also attend the Henley Royal Regatta in the United Kingdom in July.
Preparation for this level of competition includes four to five on-water sessions, as well as a diverse off-water regimen, which includes time in the Ridley rowing tank, strength training and active recovery. Training and competition are supported by a dedicated coaching staff with Ridley’s athletic therapy and school medical team, a strength and conditioning coach, and other professional instructors.
Away from their oars, rowers are educated by Ridley’s dedicated professional faculty and supported by academic advisors, tutors, and a residential life staff.
