JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT (9 to 14+)

This is beginning training for our Sprint Racing Program. Athletes typically start with a summer camp program before transitioning to this program, however, new team members are always welcome. Coaches will communicate with athletes and parents and will determine the optimal progression of paddlers as they develop.

This program will continue to develop paddler's boat skills and balance through workouts, balance challenges and dry land training and they will gain experience competing in various regattas around the province. Practices may include a mix of paddling, running and weights, depending on the weather.
