The Bantam Summer - Sprint Racing Ages 9-14 Program consists of 8 weeks of full-day sprint canoe and kayak coaching from June 29 - August 21.

No experience is necessary and all equipment is provided. Children younger than 9 may be included with Head Coach approval.

Children enjoy learning to paddle, games, beach time, fun regattas, weekly lunch as well as the option to race in more competitive regattas. 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 for athletes to train and compete in a variety of team (crew) and individual boats (singles)
- Introduction to aerobic and speed training on and off the water
- Opportunities for all participants to compete in regattas in Western Ontario Division

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
- Theme weeks with costume day on Wednesdays
- Lunch provided one day per week

The session runs Mondays to Fridays, 9:00-4:00 from June 29 to August 21, 2020 (excluding Canada Day July 1 and Civic Holiday August 3)

Cost is $950.00 including all taxes and fees.

Fees include equipment and regattas.
