INTERMEDIATE - U16-U18

REGISTRATION OPEN

INTERMEDIATE U16 / U18 (non-HP pathway) 

Our Intermediate U16 / U18 program is for older youth athletes who are interested in the sprint canoe/kayak sport and enjoy commitment to a regular training program but are not (yet) on a high performance pathway.

This is our LEARNING TO TRAIN stage where we will assess and remediate gaps in physical literacy and muscular imbalances. This is a critical stage for young athletes to learn the rules of sport, values and the consequences of one’s actions. These athletes will continue to develop their paddling skills and begin to take part in some inter-club regattas. 

All RHCC programs require swimming ability: Lifesaving Society Swim Levels Swimmer 5 or Red Cross Level 6.
