Racing development PROGRAM U12

Racing Development (RD) is for our ‘regatta ready’ U12 athletes. Participants will continue to learn to paddle singles (K1, C1) and, when COVID restrictions are lifted, doubles (K2, C2), fours (K4, C4), and War Canoe (C15). These athletes will begin to take part in some inter-club regattas.

RD runs 3xs a week while school is on in the spring and fall, and 5xs a week in the summer months. 

Racing Development Program is offered in two different options


Tuesday/Thursday 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Saturday 9:30 am – 11:000 am


Monday – Friday 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm
