EXPERIENCED MASTERS Summer 2021

Register

This program is for full time adult members with extensive paddling experience (approved by the Head Coach) who own their own personal racing boats. With safety being of primary importance, members are advised not to paddle alone and to wear Canada-approved PFDs. There are two classifications of Experienced Masters. Junior is for over 25 former youth athletes who want to continue their training independently.  Senior Masters is for over 35 adult athletes with extensive paddling experience and want to continue to train independently. Both groups are welcome to train on their own schedules. When COVID and/or Cold Water Restrictions (as per CKC policy) are in place, a paddling schedule will be sent out to ensure we are all following protocols.
