Intro to Sprint Paddling is a two-week introduction to competitive Sprint Canoe-Kayak for athletes aged U13, born between 2005 and 2008.

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 Paddling - Regatta Ready 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.


To reinforce safe paddling skills, all participants are required to wear life-jackets or PFDs any time they are on the water. All of Rideau’s paddling programs are led by friendly, dependable, knowledgeable and certified coaches.
