Trent's varsity rowing teams are recognized as some of the most prized and respected programs in the nation, consistently ranking among the top Canadian universities in competition each year.
Located on the banks of the Otonabee River in Peterborough, Ontario, Trent provides varsity rowers with daily training access to one of the best racing rivers in Canada, and over 6km of flat water. In the off-season, varsity rowers are able to keep in top shape through the use of outstanding land training facilities at the Trent Athletic Center. At Trent, you can stay in competitive form all year round.
With its prime location, Trent is also the perfect home for the Head of the Trent - the largest single-day rowing regatta in Canada, and one of the largest in North America. Held on Homecoming weekend each fall, this event draws more than 2000 competitors from across Canada and the United States. The Head of the Trent is also one example of Trent's strong relationship with the Peterborough Rowing Club, which is dedicated to providing both competitive and recreational rowing opportunities to the Peterborough community.
