    Intro to Sprint Paddling Camp

    Location: 804 Hogs Back Road, Ottawa, Ontario, K2C 0B1

    Intro to Sprint Paddling is a 2 week introductory camp for the Olympic sport of competitive Sprint Canoe Kayak for U14 aged athletes (born 2008- 2013) 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.

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