barracudas


The Rusty Dragons are excited to form the new competitive team "Barracudas" in our 15th year as a club. This will be our first team where interested paddlers don't automatically make the team, and are instead selected to join the team based on a published list of criteria.

This team is meant to provide motivated paddlers on existing once-a-week teams who want more, with the opportunity to join this team.  As a result, this becomes Criteria #1: Paddler must already be a member in good standing for another full season team whose schedule is not in conflict with the Barracudas.


Tue. Feb. 18th - Meeting Notice and other details will be emailed to registered Rusty Dragons members in TeamSnap, as well as social media posts. 


Sat. Feb. 29th from 3-5 PM - Kick-off meeting at 700 University Ave at Cardio-GO (entrance off of College Street, down stairs near north-west corner of the building).


Sat. March 14th & 28th from 3-5 PM at 700 University - Opportunities to practice on rowing erg and be tested as part of the selection criteria.  Testing at Afterburn Fitness is also possible if coordinated with Rusty Dragons.


April 1st - Selected members notified and team members announced on this website.

GUNS n ROSES

This is the fifth year for this team. Join us and spend your summer months enjoying the paddling, camaraderie, and fresh air on waterfront that comes with this team. New this year is monthly video review - where we take video of team paddling and can look at it later to identify areas where the team can improve. This is an invaluable tool to becoming a better team. We have two dedicated co-captains identified very early on to help plan for an amazing year!

Program Details for 2020


This team practices once a week from ?? to ??, and participates in X regattas.  These details won't be known until after the Feb. 29th meeting and once decisions made are confirmed available.  We plan to have the program finalized, cost set, and coach identified by March 15th.  Only then will interested paddlers be invited to register their interest to join the team.  The team members will be selected and notified on April 1st.

JOIN US in 2019!


The team had a great year in 2018.  Many members started the year with MTCS Oars to Discover (May and June and racing on Canada Day), and then joined Guns n Roses for the July through September program.   As many members were the same on both teams, we decided to make it a single full season team in 2019.  The MTCS team name will be dropped (as not many paddlers were from the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport (MTCS) any longer.  And besides, Guns n Roses was always meant to be the sister team to Motley Crew who practice the same night and time all season (plus Mondays too).

Meet new people, learn new skills, breathe in some fresh air, enjoy the waterfront, and get a little exercise. Don't miss our adventure this coming season with the thrill of racing and the camaraderie of our special group.
