Intro to Sprint Paddling is a two-week introduction to competitive Sprint Canoe-Kayak for athletes aged U14, born between 2005 and 2009.

Throughout the camp the paddlers will progress through all the basic skills of sprint paddling.  Paddlers will learn about water safety rules for sprint boats, how to balance, paddle, and train in sprint kayaks and canoes. The summer sessions of Intro to Sprint Paddling include the opportunity to race at a fun, local regatta. Participants will learn competition skills and rules for sprint canoe kayak, and will participate in on and off water training sessions. 

The Rideau Canoe Club provides all the equipment required.
