Canada Summer Games Update

  •    The Canada Summer Games Selection Camp will be held in Calgary, Alberta from Friday June 17th through to Sunday June 19th

  •    Athletes who have not met the standard by June 11th but have shown marked improvement in their technique and are within target of the erg deliverable may still be eligible for an invite to the selection camp.  These invites are at the discretion of the ARA. Athletes who fall into this category will be notified of their status to attend the selection camp on June 12th.
