Who is a Returning Paddler? Anyone who has paddled a previous season or has completed Learn to Paddle Camp.
If new to the sport, register in one of our Learn To Paddle courses where all the basics are taught. Once complete you are ready to join one of the seasonal or full-year options.
Our purpose: We use the sport of paddling to promote growth as great athletes, teammates and people. Wascana Racing Canoe Club promotes a positive, supportive and challenging environment.
Note: Paddlers will not be on the water in extreme weather conditions. However, we have a rainy-day plan so rain or shine the show goes on.
Participants must have a minimum swim competency. If asked to demonstrate swim ability the paddlers must be able to tread water for 1.5 minutes, stay afloat for 5 minutes without assistance, swim 75 metres (any stroke, any speed) without a lifejacket or other flotation device. We can not stress enough the risk of putting non-swimmers on the water, it not only presents a risk to the participant but for staff and other participants as well. If you are unsure of the ability to meet the minimum swim ability we encourage you to visit a local pool were there is a lifeguard present and try it out. * All U15 participants must wear life jackets or PFDs any time they are on the water
