    Regatta Ready is an introductory camp for the Olympic sport of competitive Sprint Canoe Kayak for U13 aged athletes (born 2004- 2007) 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 Paddle Sports- Regatta Ready 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 Paddle Sports 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 7 weeks of Summer Program, click HERE for more info.

      Winter training is a key component of becoming a canoe/kayak athlete. The goals are to improve strength, fitness, technique, and efficient training habits that will set athletes up for future success and to work with the coaches to meet their personal goals. 

      Strength sessions are held at the RCC gym; swimming and pool padding sessions are held at Carleton University pool, and running & skiing sessions will be held at Mooney's Bay or Gatineau Park. The cost of these facility rentals is included in the program fee with the exception of Gatineau Park. Athletes are responsible for their own equipment. If you choose not to purchase skis, a running program will be provided.
