Intro to Sprint Paddling

Location: 804 Hogs Back Road, Ottawa, Ontario, K2C 0B1
Contact: regattaready@rideaucanoeclub.ca 

Intro to Sprint Paddling is an introductory camp for the Olympic sport of competitive Sprint Canoe Kayak for U13 aged athletes (born 2005- 2008) and provides all the necessary skills to start paddling canoes and kayaks competitively. The goal is to teach good training habits and a love for being outdoors and on the water. 

Paddlers will learn about water safety rules and how to balance, paddle, and train in sprint kayaks and canoes. Each practice they will do a warm up, practice/work out, and cool down.

The summer sessions of Intro to Sprint Paddling include the opportunity to race at a fun, local regatta. Participants will learn competition skills and rules for sprint canoe kayak, and will participate in on and off water training sessions. 

Paddlers must demonstrate a minimum swimming ability before getting in a boat. For more info on the Swim Test, click HERE

NOTE: Intro to Sprint Paddling is designed to give you a taste of the Summer Sprint Program, but it is not a prerequisite. If you would rather register directly for the 8 weeks of Summer Program, click HERE for more info.
