Special O is a program for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. Participants paddle various water crafts such as recreational canoes and kayaks, and sprint race kayaks. Special O provides a safe and inclusive environment where each participant can build skills and confidence on the water at their own pace. The focus is on having fun and being safe! The program includes a safety orientation and instruction by experienced coaches. Each paddler spends time on the water with a paddling partner for 3:1 support. This program is ideal for ages 10 and older, but younger children may be accepted at the discretion of the Special O Coach. Participants may be divided into two groups – recreation or development. The development group has greater focus on skill improvement. Both recreational and development participants can race at regattas, competing against other Special O athletes if they wish. Please refer to the calendar on our website for regatta dates.
SESSIONS AND COST
Program runs 13 weeks from June 2nd to August 25th, 2021 on Wednesday evenings from 5:50 - 7:50. The cost is $200.00 including all taxes and fees. Fees include equipment and all regattas. Participants of Special O, along with parents or guardians, become members of Pickering Rouge Canoe Club (PRCC) for the year of registration.
It is not a requirement for Special O participants and families to do extra volunteer work for PRCC since we recognize that families are usually involved in the program itself. However, we are always looking for volunteers to assist with PRCC activities and welcome your involvement. Check out the "Jobs and Volunteering" page on our website for events and opportunities to get involved.
Only parents, legal guardians or persons 18 years of age or older can register participants for this program.
