U15 Yorkton Regatta
The Yorkton Regatta will be the last provincial regatta of the summer season, so lets finish strong! We are excited to see all of our U15 Wascana Team at the event. Our team goals are simple: attend with as many of our team as possible, have a great regatta experience, give our best effort, have fun and cheer louder than any other club. These are our measures of success.

Coach & Athlete Travel:
Our Team is now big enough to travel with our Club 15 passenger vans and one 7-passenger Van. (Go TEAM!) We love the time together in the vans as a great way to foster team building and a sense of WRCC unity. It also allows athletes who may not otherwise have rides to participate and makes sure we all get there on time. The Team will depart the Wascana Racing Canoe Club at 6:30AM Saturday with the travel time estimated at 2 hours.
It is wise to pack snacks for the bus but the bus will stop on route for a meal on the way home from the Regatta. Saturday, snacks will be provided at the race course by our own WRCC Performance Nutrition Team (Let Mike know if you want to help as part of this group). Team staff will help ensure athlete are fueling well.

Coaches appreciate any parents willing to assist the team by supervising from time to time run errands. Please let us know if you will be joining us in Yorkton. All athletes are expected to behave in an appropriately, represent themselves and the Wascana Racing Canoe Club in a top-quality manner, and display the highest degree of sportsmanship.
You know better than anyone what you will need for personal race equipment. Do not ASSUME that your equipment has been taken on the trailer. Work with your coach to ensure what you need gets loaded on the trailer. To be sure, Pack it yourself!
