Winter is coming!
Some days it still feels like summer but don't get caught off guard. Calgary Canoe Club members need to start thinking about changing to winter tires AND shifting to winter training activities.
October 18th - Fall sprint paddlers will start in the swimming pool, even before the official transition to winter. Sunday evenings from 6:30-8:00PM paddlers will be in the University of Calgary Pool.
What a great season it has been. The sprint team numbers where up with Calgarians discovering our secret paradise. Parents looking for safe, outside, and physical distanced activity were lucky to find our team and many have continued into the Fall paddling programs. For many who stay with the club over the colder months, this will be their first winter as paddlers.
Winter activities at the club range from a once a week swim with the U12 age group and progress to 9-12 sessions a week for the senior competitors preparing for Canada Games Team Camps and events, National team Selection events and the National Champs to be held in Ottawa, late in August.
Winter Program Q & A - An informative session for parents will be held (outside) at the Canoe Club on Saturday 9-9:30AM, October 17th while paddlers are getting their gear ready for training. Drop off your athlete and stay for 30min to ask questions, then watch the action.
