Petrie Island Canoe Club Youth Racing Eight-Week Summer Camp
Our Youth Racing program is an introduction to the sport of Competitive Canoe Kayak. It is designed to be suited to the participant’s age, experience and fitness level. Participants will learn to develop focus, take direction, and develop their work ethic. The focus is to build basic paddling skills and abilities; learn to paddle with proper technique, develop proficiency in singles and crew boats, build endurance, and continually advance in speed and strength. Participants will hone these skills over 8 weeks, preparing them to be introduced to racing. The program is designed for youth ages 9 and older.
