Intro to Sprint is a two-week program for children aged 9-15 who are interested in sprint canoe kayak, but are unsure about a whole summer in the program. No experience is necessary and all equipment is provided. Children younger than 9 may be able to participate with Head Coach approval. Each session includes a regatta.

Children enjoy games, beach time, weekly BBQs and regattas (races). Our well-trained coaches teach fundamental paddling skills and provide a comprehensive physical activity program that involves paddling, balance drills, and games and activities in a positive fun environment.

The program is based on Canoe Kayak Canada’s (CKC) model for Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) and provides:
- A fun and safe environment for all participating athletes
- Instruction in the fundamentals of sprint canoe and kayak for both beginners and experienced paddlers
- Opportunities to train in a variety of team (crew) and individual boats (singles)
- Introduction to aerobic and speed training on and off the water

The day-to-day activities include:
- Morning meet and greet
- Morning warm up with dry land activities such as jogging and dynamic stretching
- Group games such as volleyball, pickle, frisbee, jack-pot and relay races
- Multiple on-water sessions with time in team boats, singles and big boats (war canoe)
- Beach activities, swimming, time in fun boats (non-racing boats)
- Designated lunch time supervised by coaches
- Weekly BBQ!
