Please check out our club and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!   We invite you to Come Paddle With Us, join us for a free learn to paddle session or come watch anytime.    You can find us on the water from May through October, and in the tank from December through March during any of our regular program times.     


Under the leadership of Olympian KC Fraser coach development is a priority.   Our coaches offer excellence and dedication to individual and team athlete development.  


Located on a premiere flatwater venue on the scenic Welland Recreational Canal, at the world class WIFC, a Pan Am Legacy and host of 5 previous world championships, our waters are the envy of flatwater athletes around the world.
