RACING INTRODUCTORY

WELCOME TO RHCC - THE SUMMER 2024 RACING INTRO PROGRAM!

RACING INTRODUCTION (RI) is for the newest youth members of our club, aged 11 to 14 years old. Many of our RI paddlers come directly from our Canoe Kids program or are new to our club. RI is designed to help new competitive paddlers develop their technique and skills. We have three different sections of Racing Intro in 2024. All groups are SUMMER ONLY (no spring or fall hours). If you are interested in joining in the Spring, please register for our RD (Racing Development) program which can be found in the Competitive Youth section.

This is our FUNdamentals stage where we emphasize the overall development of a child’s physical capacities, fundamental movement skills including agility, balance, coordination and speed.

All RHCC programs are led by qualified coaches. All indicated ages are directional. If you are unsure about which program to register for, please reach out to Andrew Ivanov, our head coach (head_coach@rhcc.on.ca) or Mary Chambers, our registrar (programs@rhcc.on.ca), and we’ll help you find the right program.

*please note that $10 of every program fee is put toward our ‘Athlete Support Fund’ designed to help athletes with financial constraints stay in the sport.

 

All RHCC programs require swimming ability: LSS Swimmer 5 or Red Cross Level 6.

RHCC 2024 Masters Program

Welcome to the Richmond Hill Canoe Club Masters paddling program. We have something for all interest and skill levels so please review the programs and find the one best suited to you.

If you are unsure about which program to register for, please reach out to Andrew Ivanov, our head coach (head_coach@rhcc.on.com), or Mary Chambers, our registrar (programs@rhcc.on.ca), and we’ll help you find the right program.

Our Experienced Masters’ program is designed for independent, competent paddlers who train regularly on their own schedule. These paddlers have their own boats and paddles and compete at various regattas throughout the season.

All coached programs will have a two-week vacation from August 20 to September 6, except for those competing at the Canadian National Championships.

If you are an adult new to the sport of sprint kayaking, please register for our Adult Intro program.
