Junior Masters
(ages 18-24)

This program is for experienced sprint racing athletes (approved by the Head Coach) who want to maintain their paddling skills and who own their own personal racing boats. The clubhouse is open many mornings and evenings in the summer to allow experienced paddlers to go out on the water in groups. Training programs are available for this group but no direct coaching. With safety being of primary importance, members are advised not to paddle alone and to wear Canada-approved PFDs when paddling in cold weather.

Coached Masters
(age 25+)

This program is for adults who would like to be full time members of the club and learn the skills for sprint racing. Club equipment is supplied. On-water coaching and planned workouts take place three times per week from May through October. This group is led by an Assistant Coach.

Experienced Masters
(age 25+)

This program is for full time members with extensive paddling experience (approved by the Head Coach) who own their own personal racing boats. The clubhouse is open many mornings and evenings in the summer to allow experienced paddlers to go out on the water in groups. Training programs are available for this group but no direct coaching. With safety being of primary importance, members are advised not to paddle alone and to wear Canada-approved PFDs when paddling in cold weather.
