Adult Intro to Flatwater Program (April to September)
This program is for paddlers who are new to the sport of sprint canoe/kayak. The learning objectives of this program include becoming familiar with sprint boats and equipment care, working on balance, and building an understanding of paddling technique through drills and workouts. Paddlers will also have opportunities to try team boats and participate in local races. Initial practices will be held inside Alder Bay but may extend outside of the bay, as paddlers become more comfortable.
- Sundays 11am-12:30pm
- Note: Feel free to make what practices you can. Also, practices may be cancelled on regatta weekends (and made up on an alternate date). Paddlers will be notified ahead of time. See schedule for race dates.

- 3 months – $120+gst
- 6 months – $210+gst
