Swim Team - October to March

The 2013-2014 school year marks the first time in the history of Grimsby Secondary that we have had a swim team!  All students are welcome to participate--a basic knowledge of swim strokes and the abilty to tread water is the requirement.

There are two practices per week:  one in water at the Grimsby YMCA and one conditioning ("dry land") practice in the school gym.  We attend three formals meets, leading up to OFSAA, with several smaller
invitational meets during the season.

Rowing -  November to June

Rowing is a sport that requires hard work, dedication, the ability to work as a team and, most importantly, the ability to have fun.

Our rowing team has a long tradition of outstanding success with no less than 5 of our graduates going on to make the National Team and represent Canada on the world stage including the Olympic Games (Chris Jarvis) and World Championships at the junior level (Brandon Batey), senior (Jeff Bujas, Steve Van Knotsenberg), and U23 (Travis King). Emily Mann made the CanAmMex team two years in a row, won gold at the Stotesbury Cup in 2013 and has received a scholarship from the University of Massachusetts.   Aly Derksen and Skylar Goudswaard won Gold in the Junior Girls Double in 2014.

Training for the school season begins in the Spartacus room in November. Students new to the sport learn the mechanics of the rowing stroke on the ergometer and begin to build their cardiovascular base. This involves rowing on the erg, running and circuit weights. Experienced rowers begin a more advanced program to further increase their fitness base.

At the beginning of April, rowers begin on the water. Practices are everyday and regattas take place on weekends. Some rowers begin their days at 5am! We participate in various regattas locally like Mothers Day and the Canadian Secondary School Rowing Championships (Schoolboy) as well as in regattas out of town like the Stotesbury Cup in Philadelphia, PA. The rowing season ends the first weekend of June with the Schoolboy Regatta.
