The Pickering Rouge Canoe Club is pleased to offer a safe, physically-distant paddling opportunity for adults who would like to navigate various self-propelled watercraft with other individuals (who will always remain six feet away).
This Saturday morning session is intended for novices or those who are looking to brush up on their paddling skills and/or perhaps try out a new watercraft. No experience is necessary!

What is the program? The program will introduce participants to three different solo paddling experiences by rotating them through stations of various watercraft.
Station #1: SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding) 45-50 minutes
Station #2: Pleasure Canoeing 45-50 minutes
Station #3: Beginner level kayaks 45-50 minutes
Participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of each watercraft. Once a level of proficiency has been established, individuals will be allowed to traverse up river to get a unique perspective of the Rouge National Urban Park.
There will be a 10-15 minute break in between each station so that we can sanitize equipment, allow for a water break and rotate groups.

Where will the program take place? Solo Paddling Together will take place on the Rouge River in Rouge National Urban Park. The entrance to Rouge Beach Park is at the intersection of Rouge Hills Drive and Lawrence Ave. E. in Scarborough (see: Locations).

How many people can join the program? How will we ensure physical distancing is maintained?
Each Saturday session will be capped at 18 participants. Upon your arrival, you will be divided into three groups of six. Each group of six will travel together through the three different paddling stations. Equipment will be cleaned after every station. This will allow us to create a safe and enjoyable paddling environment.

What do participants need to bring?
Participants MUST provide their own lifejackets. We cannot lend lifejackets this year as it is too difficult to sanitize the fabric of the lifejacket.
Participants are encouraged to bring the following: water shoes, sun-hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, a reusable water bottle and clothing suitable for activity.

What is the cost of the program?
The cost for the Saturday session of SPT is $30.00 for each participant.

All participants must read and sign off that they have read the PRCC concussion code of conduct. See our page on Rowan's Law for full information.

Participants become members of Pickering Rouge Canoe Club (PRCC) for the year of registration.


Only parents, legal guardians or persons 18 years of age or older can register participants for this program. If you are not at least 18 years old, a parent or guardian will need to complete the registration.

Payment is by credit card or eTransfer (select payment type Other and send eTransfer to [email protected]).

On the first day of your program, please bring your email confirmation and waiver that will be emailed to you.


A full refund of your membership will be granted if an e-mailed request to [email protected] is received within 24 hours of registering or more than one month remains before the start of the program. Memberships are active from the start of the program. They become non-active at the end of the season or upon our receipt of your application for refund. Refunds after the start of the program will only be considered for medical reasons with proper medical documentation. Non-use is not a reason for refund of membership. Refunds are not given for inclement weather.
