Winter Session 2018/19

This winter come join coach KC Fraser and South Niagara Canoe Club for our off-season program where we will be working on strength and fitness as well as the technical aspect of the kayak and canoe stroke.  This program is a great way to get into paddling shape before the summer racing months.  

This program runs from November 1, 2018 through April 28, 2019 

Specific dates and workouts can change at the coaches discretion.  

High Performance is 8 sessions per week.   $590 Six days a week.  201 sessions.  See below for details

Developmental+ is 3 sessions per week,  $425 Mondays  Fridays and Saturdays and is for those paddlers who have completed a program already and want to transition to racing.     

1 session per week  $275 is a choice for those that only want to join us in the tank & gym at the Welland International Flatwater Centre  for 14 sessions on Mondays from January through April. 

Family discounts are provided for multiple registrants from one family. Second children receive a 10% discount, while all subsequent children receive a 25% discount (discount to be applied to the program of equal or lesser value) *if you register for the discounted amount against the higher valued program, SNCC will automatically correct the invoice.Due to high costs of programming for winter, family discounts are not available for winter session.

High Performance is for experienced paddlers who are interested in competition and reaching their full potential. Participants will be competing at the local and provincial level as well as National and perhaps International events and will be instructed according to Train to Perform standards of the Sport Canada’s Sport For Life Pathway. Athletes will be training 8-10 sessions a week focusing on both on-water and off-water workouts with a qualified coach.
