Programs include Learn-to-Row, Novice, Recreational, and Competitive for Juniors (ages 11-18) and Adults (ages 19+).


Rowing was the major organized sport at MMAAC when it was first established in 1923. Many great rowing crews and events have graced the lake since those days.The famous Mic Mac fours crew represented Canada and finished third in the 1932 Olympics. The crew consisted of Henry Pelham, Gordon (Tiny) Gammon, Fraser Herman and Frank Courtney.

Over the years many MMAAC rowers have gone on to compete nationally and internationally. Todd Hallett rowed for Canada in five World Championships and the 1992, 1996, and 2000 Olympics. Cody Bailey is currently training with the National Team aiming for Tokyo 2020!
