Intro To Sprint (ages 9-14): If your child is interested in Sprint Canoe or Kayaking and has never been a member of the club in the past, but you are unsure if they will want to spend the entire summer doing it. This is the program for you!

The camp consists of 2 weeks of full-day sprint canoe and kayak coaching. 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, 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. 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. Each 2 week session runs Mondays to Fridays, 9:00-4:00 July 4 to August 25, 2023 (excluding Civic Holiday August 7). Fees include equipment.
