Special Olympics Paddling
Special Olympics Paddling is a program aimed at promoting individuals with disabilities to participate in the sport of Canoe Kayak. Many successful programs are already in place across Canada. The positive impact of these programs at individual clubs propelled Canoe Kayak Canada in 2007 to begin a national initiative to support national standards in promotion, recruitment, coaching and competition. The program is a direct outgrowth of CKC’s strategy to give our member Clubs the resources to meet the paddling needs of their local communities all across Canada.
DATES: June 27 to August 22
TIME: Mondays 6:30 to 8:00pm
The ratio for this program is a minimum of 1:1. Each Special Olympic athlete paddles with a buddy.
Make-up sessions due to weather cancellations will be held on Friday evening of the same week.
* Please ask the coach for regatta details if your Special Olympic athlete wishes to race this summer. Regatta fees/insurance/CKO Sprint membership will be an additional $25.
