Be a Stronger, Fitter, Faster and Better paddler in the Spring.  Winter training provides the necessary foundation for successful in-season and long-term athletic development. Activities include Strength, Run, Ski and Erg sessions. Training takes place indoors and outdoors at the Canoe Club. Schedule to be posted soon.

The WRCC training progressively builds the physical and technical foundation of long-term performance. The objective is to provide appropriate training opportunities to support athletes (at all stages) along the path to personal best performances and sport enjoyment.

This is a competitive group for athletes who have chosen paddling as a primary sport. The focus of the group is learning to train, mastering technique skills, and exposing the athletes to sport, and competitive canoe/kayak lifestyles. Athletes in this group are expected to compete in all outlined divisional regattas, and national regattas (that they are qualified for). They are also expected to participate in camps and club-wide events as set-up by coaching staff.

Work commitments help benefit the Club in many ways. The funds generated help to purchase new equipment, pay bills and staff. Working these commitments helps us keep our program costs lower for you. They are also a great way for parents to learn more about the Club and what happens down at the boathouse. It’s amazing how many friendships are forged at Bingo!

The other great part of working commitments is the ability to generate money in your Travel Account. Once work commitments are completed, additional fundraising monies go to your travel account. Taking advantage of all opportunities to build up the Travel Account can have an enormous impact on the athlete’s financial ability to fully participate in the competitive season.
