Victoria Youth Paddling Club Membership Registration


Winter Program


Our programs are for youth 9 years old and up. Paddlers will learn water safety and correct stroke technique while developing strength, balance and co-ordination. Through a progressive learning model, paddlers learn the fundamentals in stable boats and move to more challenging boats as their skills develop. Practices are led by NCCP trained or certified coaches with a low paddler to coach ratio (typically 5:1). 

There will also be some sessions in local pools this winter.  The days and times may differ from regular practice times.

Sunday 12:30-2:00pm

Age 9-14 - youth will be introduced to a variety of boats  (e.g sprint kayak, outrigger, whitewater kayak, paddleboard).  

Sunday 2:15-3:45pm

Paddlers with more than two years of experience or beginners 13 years and up will focus on skill development in outriggers (OC-1 and OC-6), sprint kayaks and whitewater kayaks.
