About

Our Youth Fundamentals – Introduction to Racing Program is geared toward paddlers who have come through our Youth Camps, Youth Intro to Paddling course, or Sprint into September course. This multidisciplinary paddling program continues to develop fundamental paddling skills while also focusing on building foundation fitness skills through developmentally appropriate cross-training and physical activities. Our NCCP trained coaches will be teaching the basics of water safety, stroke technique, coordination, and balance in a variety of boats, while engaging the paddlers in fun games and team focused activities. This program includes paddling in canoes, kayaks, surfskis, outrigger canoes, and dragon boats, allowing paddlers to experience the different competitive avenues open to them at False Creek Racing Canoe Club.
This program includes full Summer Programming as well as an opportunity to compete in local regattas.
