Spring Training (U11, U13, U15)

Welcome to the sprint program which offers a graduated Learn to Paddle program for children and teens to become comfortable in the boats and work together as a team to master paddling skills.

Spring training providers paddlers with the opportunity to get on the water ahead of the summer regatta season. Paddlers can continue to train through the summer camps where they will have the option to race at one of the local regattas within the Eastern Ontario Division. Paddlers will train and race as individuals and in crews of 2 or 4 paddlers, using canoes and kayaks, as well as the always exciting 15 person war canoe.

To accommodate busy schedules there will be three training times throughout the week:

  • Monday and Thursday 6:00 - 8:00 pm
  • Saturday 10:00 - 12:00 pm

Athletes must arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of practice to get equipment set-up.

All athletes must come prepared with running shoes for warm-ups and dry-land training when the weather is not cooperating.

This program is open to both members and non-members. Non-members can purchase a membership now that will be valid for the rest of the year.
