Development Program

Development Program (9-14 years old)

 

Our development program introduces children to the sport of sprint canoe and kayak in a fun, safe and team oriented environment! The program is run by our Head Coach Connor Fehr with help of other certified and fun coaches. The program is open to new and experienced paddlers and focuses on teaching the FUNdamentals of paddling. We teach this by developing a foundation for movement skills, coordination, balance and team work.

On the water kids get to try out a variety of different sprint boats. We have boats that accommodate all levels from beginner to expert! We also engage in a variety of developmentally appropriate sports and physical activity.

During summer months, paddlers are encouraged to participate in local regattas. It is always the best part of summer!

Kaleb is one of our development athletes who got invited to compete at the BC summer games in Cowichan Valley this summer!
