Our U10 Sprint Racing program for ages 8-9 is an 8 week summer program designed around Canoe Kayak Canada’s FUNdamentals and Foundations stage of the Long Term Athlete Development plan. Athletes will work with our friendly, experienced, and certified coaches to learn about water safety, introductory sprint canoe and kayak technique, and physical literacy through games and practices on the water. All of our staff are certified by the National Coach Certification Program and are passionate about teaching our young members about the importance of water safety in a fun and knowledgeable environment. We also focus on building a strong base for athlete development with regards to technical understanding and an appreciation for the sport. This year will look different then most years as it is more of a practice format rather than a camp format. The participants will be training in single boats only for the summer.
This year participants will have practice blocks, 3 times per week, where they are split into small groups of 4-7 athletes per coach. This allows for a more personal coaching style and is a fantastic opportunity for these young athletes to develop in a fun and focused environment.
All of our sprint programs will operate strictly under the new CPCC COVID-19 Policies and Procedures, developed and put in place with guidance from the government and our sporting affiliates. Physical distancing measures will be in place around the club at all times
