Paddle 4 Life Program (Masters program) for Experienced Paddlers

Paddle 4 life promotes fitness and paddling for adults of all ages. Training includes lots of time in the boats to help develop your balance as you improve your technical skills in sprint singles and crew boats. Participants also learn to paddle in bigger water conditions in surf skis and outriggers.  On days when the water is really rough participants will go out in our OC6 and surf the waves.

The option to sprint race will be available at various local regattas and at the Canadian Masters Championships being held this year in Ottawa on August 29th, 2021.  Participants also have the opportunity to try out the outrigger and surf ski skills they have developed at the Ottawa River Paddle Challenge (ORPC) September 18th, 2021.

All P4L experienced participants must be ORCC members.  Those who wish to compete must get a competitive membership so that the appropriate association fees can be collected.  Please note none of these fees go to ORCC. The association fees are as follows:

ORCC Credit Card Policy:

ORCC offers a variety of payment methods such as cheque, etransfer and credit card.   However, credit card transactions cost the club thousands of dollars every year.  In an effort to keep program pricing reasonable, we ask those participants who wish to pay by credit card to ensure you also pay the credit card convenience fee to help offset the costs to the club.  No convenience fee is charged for etransfers or cheque.

Please be aware of the ORCC Cancellation Policy:

  • Program registration cancellations received up to 2 weeks into the program will receive a prorated refund less a $50 nonrefundable administration fee.
  • No refunds are available after two weeks of programming;  cancellations received after 2 weeks into the program will be issued a prorated credit only.
  • In the case of injury or illness, a medical certificate may be required, and refunds will only be offered as a prorated credit to be used for a future ORCC camp or program registration.
**N.B. - “The ORCC reserves the right to refuse admission or cancel registrations in the programs at its discretion.”
