It is time to start planning ahead for summer fun and exercise. VLAC has a range of activities planned for the summer. Each summer we run 1 week camps all summer long for kids ages 7-11 yrs. Middle School, High School and College rowers can choose one or all three of the 3 week sessions. For adults we have dragon boating and rowing. Don't miss out-- contact Alan today!
Oh what a season for the Middle School Rowers!
from Coach Joel:
I am incredibly proud of how much the kids learned down at the Lake this past season. On day one many of the kids didn’t even know how to get into the boats! Fast forward to the last week of practice and we were all helping to carry each other’s boats to and from the water (without the coach needing to tell us!), racing our first ever 2k’s on the erg, and even standing as a team in an 8! Despite the hard workouts and occasionally rough water, the kids worked and grew as a team. Rowing for me is a sport about teamwork, camaraderie, and fitness. I think we managed to build upon all of those things this spring, which speaks to me of a successful season! I am very excited to see the kids move on to the summer session (hello sun!) and I hope they continue into the fall, whether they’re coming back to the middle school team or moving on to high school.

You may have noticed...
VLC is not just VLC anymore. Our current location has always been the Vancouver Aquatic Center, but until recently, we haven't been able to offer opportunities besides rowing. With the popularity of dragon boating, kayaking, and other water pursuits, you will see more references to the Vancouver Lake Aquatic Center or VLAC.
