Rowing Canada Aviron and Immunotec Inc. Announce Winning Clubs for Visit from National Team Members

VAUDREUIL-DORION, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 11, 2014) - Rowing Canada Aviron and Immunotec Inc. are pleased to announce the winning rowing clubs for the Club and Coach Grant, Powered by Immunocal®. The winning clubs will receive a visit from a National Team Coach and National Senior Team Athlete along with a $1,000 grant to be used to help the club maximise the opportunity of the visit.

Sponsored by health and wellness company Immunotec Inc., the visits provide a great opportunity for local clubs to learn from the country's best.

The winning clubs are:

  • Argonaut Rowing Club, Toronto, ON
  • Fredericton Rowing Club, Frederiction, NB
  • South Niagara Rowing Club, Welland, ON
  • Ridley College Boat Club & St. Catharines Rowing Club, St. Catharines, ON

"This program, made possible by Immunotec Inc., is a great way for our best coaches and athletes to give back to our local clubs," said Donna Atkinson, CEO of Rowing Canada Aviron, speaking from Toronto. "With a few exceptions, our country's best rowers are made right here in local rowing clubs and we're always looking at how we can work with our provincial partners to drive growth and excellence within our clubs."

In addition to supplying sport performance nutrition supplements, such as Immunocal Platinum, to Rowing Canada Aviron's National Team athletes as an Official Supplier, Immunotec Inc wished to recognise the role of the local club and so worked with Rowing Canada Aviron in the design of the Club and Coach Grant, Powered by Immunocal.

"Immunotec is delighted to be able to contribute to this grass roots program." said John Molson,
Vice-President, Research and Development of Immunotec Inc. "Giving these young up and coming rowers the opportunity to meet these elite athletes and coaches will hopefully inspire them, and numerous others to dream big and follow in their footsteps."

The visits are scheduled to take place in the fall after the National Team completes the 2014 international season. The National Senior Team will shortly travel to Europe ahead of the World Rowing Cup II taking place June 20 to 22.
