 General Details 

Spring Training programs are a great way to build on foundational paddling techniques, while developing some great paddling endurance and paddle fitness through "FUNdamentals". These programs are a great way for recreational paddlers to become more comfortable in sprint boats using a progressive program designed to challenge each athlete individually.  Crew boats, Kayak, Canoe and Warcanoe (assuming COVID permits it) will all be explored. The hope is that by the end of the spring, participants will be ready for a summer of fun on the water and racing against other canoe clubs!

Spring Intro to Competition Layout 

This spring evening program is designed for the paddler who would like to improve their skills in sprint boats.  The program offers a graduated program for children and teens to increase comfort in sprint boats and work together as a team to master paddling skills.

The focus of these practices will be to work on paddling skills and technique, while developing paddle endurance and overall fitness. This program is ideal for anyone registered in the Intro to Competition Camp or have participated in a previous Intro to Competition evening program. Spring training is one of the best times to be on the water!
