The Masters Sprint Paddling Program includes attending local, divisional, provincial and national regattas! Paddlers will get information on upcoming races a week or two prior to the event. It is very important that paddlers notify their coach if they are unable to attend any regatta as team boats require a team commitment.

Club membership is required to participate in the Master Sprint Paddling Programs except for the Intro to Sprint program. Membership covers the full calendar year. There are individual and family memberships available. Click here to join the Rideau Canoe Club as a member.
