Your Destination For Paddling Sports

SNCC has Sprint Canoe/Kayak and Dragon Boat programs suited to those trying a boat for the first time, Olympic hopefuls and everyone in between. Sprint Canoe/Kayak is an Olympic sport that combines strength, endurance, and technique for singles and crew boats. Dragon Boat Paddling is a team sport with crews of up to 20 paddlers.  2021 will see the introduction of Outrigger Canoe single boats to SNCC.
