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. All-Abilities 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 All-Abilities 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 All-Abilities athletes if they wish. Please refer to the calendar on our website for regatta dates.


Program runs from May 29th to August 28th, 2023 on Monday evenings from 6:00pm - 8:00pm. The cost is $250.00 including all taxes and fees.  Fees include equipment and all regattas. Participants of All-Abilities, along with parents or guardians, become members of Pickering Rouge Canoe Club (PRCC) for the year of registration.

Payment is by credit card.
