Racing INTRO PROGRAM

RACING INTRO is for the newest youth members of our club, age 10+, to develop their paddling skills.  Participants will learn to paddle singles (K1, C1), and, when COVID restrictions lift, doubles (K2, C2), fours (K4, C4), and War Canoe (C15).

We have two sections of Racing Intro program that extend from the spring to the fall. 

All RHCC programs require swimming ability: LSS Swimmer 5 or Red Cross Level 6.

All RHCC programs are led by qualified coaches.

The Racing Intro Program is offered as either a full season program or a summer-only program.
