Adult Intro to Competitive Canoeing

Adult Intro to Competitive Canoeing

If you’ve ever considered canoeing a leisurely activity, this course will show you another side to the sport! Canoes can be fast, provide a low-impact, full-body workout, and can be more technical and tactical than you would ever imagine. Working with a partner and alongside other boats is fun and community-based. It’s a challenge that anyone can take on, and being on the water and in nature provides a whole different perspective and adds to your well-being. Join to learn efficient technique and train for a local race that we’ll target together as a group!
