Petrie Island Canoe Club – Summer Fun!

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.

PICC has offered a full-year training program since we opened in 2016.  This year, PICC added Dragon Boat, expanded into the 16+ age category, and added on-water Spring Training (May-June) for both new and experienced paddlers to help prepare for the competitive season.  Older athletes may attend Spring Training Camp in Florida, and compete for a berth on Team Canada at the National Team Trials.

PICC’s 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, and athletes U16+ may also qualify to race at the National Championships.

Kids as young as 10 may participate in PICC’s Fall Training program (Sept-Nov), which includes running, resistance, and on-water practices.

Winter Training runs from November until April/May, and includes swimming, pool paddling, running, circuits/weights, skiing, and a variety of games and drills. For more information on these and all other programs visit the Programs Section
