Petrie Island Canoe Club – Get Outside, Stay Outside!

Petrie Island Canoe Club is a non-profit, volunteer-run organization, serving the community of Orleans by providing top-quality local recreation to people of all ages and abilities through its paddling programs.

Since 2016, PICC has offered full-year training for canoe-kayak athletes, including 6 months of winter cross-training.

Winter Training runs from November until April/May, for kids 12 and up.  We offer up to nine practices per week, including swimming, pool paddling, running, circuits/weights, skiing, team sports, and a variety of agility & balance games and drills. For more information on these and all other programs visit the Programs Section

Summer Programs (spanning July & August), are always very busy.  Regatta-Ready programs wrap up with a low-key, novice regatta every two weeks.  Youth Racing athletes compete most weekends.  For younger kids, the competitive season culminates with the Provincial Championships.  Athletes 15 years and older may attend Spring Training Camp in Florida, compete for a berth on Team Canada at the National Team Trials, and race at the National Championships, for their club.

Spring and Fall Training programs (May-June, and Sept-Nov respectively), include running, resistance, and on-water practices.  Younger athletes may attend three practices per week, while older athletes may train as many as eight times per week.
