Developmental Program

·         SNCC’s Developmental canoe/kayak program is based on the “Learn to train” stage from the fundamental and foundation stages of Sport Canada’s Long Term Athlete Development pathway. This program focuses specifically on:

o   Basic movements in sprint canoe and kayak

o   Singles

o   Team boats

o   Introductory principles of sport training as well as healthy approaches to sport

·         This program is taught by our experienced instructors in a safe and fun environment. At the conclusion of the term, the paddler will be familiar with the joy of an active lifestyle and a heightened capability to enjoy the beautiful Welland Recreational Waterway.

·         Paddlers will have a chance to compete locally if interested (not required)
