Sprint Racing–Development (U10, U12, U14)

This competitive summer long paddling program provides instruction and training for beginners and experienced athletes. The focus is on developing paddling skills, enjoying beautiful Trout Lake, making friends, and age-appropriate training that follows Long Term Athlete Development principles. Athletes will compete in local and out of town regattas with a chance to race at provincial championships. Groups are divided into U10, U12, and U14 categories. Athletes practice twice per day on the water, once in singles and once in team boat and often complete a non-paddling activity each day such as running, soccer, swimming, etc.

To reinforce safe paddling skills, all participants are required to wear life-jackets or PFDs any time they are on the water. All of NBCC’s paddling programs are led by friendly, knowledgeable coaches with First Aid certification.

Parents have the option of registering for this program with or without full-day supervision, depending on their needs.
