Ongoing Kids and Youth Sprint Canoe and Kayak Programs at FCRCC
Join the FCRCC Youth Sprint Canoe and Kayak team!
All new paddlers will start off with a few sessions in the Intro program regardless of age.
Our programs run year long (split into Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter sessions) and are for those who want to learn more advanced paddling skills and try out racing. These racing programs also include summer camp options for the younger age groups!
We have four main paddling groups at False Creek, based on age, level of fitness and paddling skills, and training goals. These follow the Long-Term Athlete Development pathway in the sport of Olympic Sprint Canoe & Kayak.
Group transition is at the coach’s discretion and dependent on the paddler’s age, skill level, and focus.
New to Paddling?
Drop in on our Saturday Intro Drop-In Sessions from 12pm-2pm to try out sprint paddling and learn more! $15 drop-in fee.
No experience is required to join! Simply contact us if you plan to come out! From there you can continue into one of our regular programs if interested, or just continue dropping in on Saturdays.
