Your Destination For Paddling Sports

developmental program Details

SNCC’s Developmental Sprint Canoe/Kayak program focuses on teaching basic skills in sprint canoe and sprint kayak for youth ages 10-15* in an encouraging and fun-focused environment.  At the conclusion of the term, the paddler will be familiar with the joy of an active lifestyle and a heightened ability to enjoy the beautiful Welland Recreational Waterway. The program content is the “Learn to Train” of Sport Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development pathway. This program provides an opportunity to be in single boats, as well as learn introductory principles of sport training and healthy approaches to sport.

Participants will have a chance to compete locally if interested (not required).
