We occasionally hold club meetings for parents/guardians and athletes to discuss important club items. We are always looking for the special talents of our amazing member to help out. We have volunteer opportunities in the areas of equipment maintenance, board positions, fundraising rock stars, bookkeeping, or any other talents you want to share.
We are partnered with our sister club, Fort Langley Canoe Club. They specialize in different areas of paddle sports. They have divisions for Dragon Boats, OC Kayaks and Voyageur Canoes. Between our clubs, we have everything you could want to do on the water with a paddle!
We try to communicate regularly and send emails to all members to keep everyone updated. Our members are great about reading these emails and pitching in to help out. They know that hard working staff and volunteers are in the background building a great club and providing opportunities for our athletes.
Please let your coach know if you are going to be late or away for a practice.
As athletes carrying boats can’t always navigate a crowd safely, please ensure you stay clear of athletes if you are on the dock.
The paddle sport dock, where practices are held, is community space and shared by many people. We ask athletes to please be respectful to others and keep the area clean.
Your coach will let everybody know when they need to be at races. For regattas, being late or missing a race start time will result in the athlete's boat being scratched from the race. This has consequences for all athletes, especially your teammates in a team boat. As well, athletes can be charged a scratch fee by the race organizers for missing a race.
This sport is a very positive environment, and our members, coaches and athletes are wildly enthusiastic and supportive. We compete hard and cheer loudly.
All members are respectfully requested to read and follow the Fort Canoe and Kayak Code of Conduct posted here.
Coming into a group of people is sometimes challenging, especially for youngsters. Those of us already in as members promise that we will make new athletes and family welcome. Introduce yourself to other parents at practices and regattas, attend meetings and hear what is going on. We are happy to have you.
