This program is designed for high-performance, experienced paddlers aged 15 and older who are training with the goal of attending the Canoe Kayak Canada National Championships. Athletes will gain increasing proficiency in their single and team events, including war canoe.
A commitment to year-long training and competition is a requirement as training continues during the off-water season with a compliment of strength and endurance training through swimming, running, paddle machines, weights, and Nordic skiing
This summer program is complemented by NBCC’s Spring and Fall Training programs, and the “coming soon” Winter Training and Florida Spring camp programs.
