Sprint Canoe & Kayak

Olympic Sprint Canoe and Kayak continues to be a growing sport at the club.  As a member of CanoeKayakBC (PSO) and CanoeKayakCanada (NSO), our club offers a variety of ways to get involved with the sport, whether recreationally or competitively, for adults and youth of all ages and abilities.  Our highly certified coaching staff focuses on creating opportunities for paddlers in a supportive and fun learning environment.  Learn more about our sport HERE!



We have many exciting options to help keep your kids active!  Our sprint canoe and kayak youth paddling programs are structured based off the nationwide Canadian Sport For Life Long-Term Athlete Development model, and more specifically, the CanoeKayakCanada LTAD Model.  This model is designed to help kids develop optimally through stages, acquiring fundamental skills and progressively building on their technical and physical skills. Learn more about how your kid(s) can develop through our Youth Programs HERE!


The Fall/Winter program is geared towards developing necessary movement and physical skills that will better prepare the paddlers for the Spring/Summer racing season.  Each program level targets age appropriate athlete development of skills and awareness in sport.
