We are looking to partner with a community, organization or individuals in Calgary and the surrounding area. We are offering an exciting opportunity to provide your community with a summer filled with fun and action on the water.
ASRCA will deliver all the needed instructors and equipment. What we are looking for is the perfect pond, lake or river! Many Calgary communities have wonderful water, help us bring to it a truly Canadian Sport. Canoe/Kayak is one of Canadas top performing Olympic sports and most of all, kids love playing in kayaks on the lake. Who knows, maybe we will find some future Team Canada Paddlers too.
We propose to deliver lessons over the Summer months and organized into 2 week introductory lessons. Lessons are 2hrs each and may be held in the morning and afternoon (to be negotiated).
Over the two week program our certified coaching staff will guide kids through the skills required to master basic balance and stroke techniques in a fun atmosphere.
On completion of the program the paddlers will take part in a fun sprint canoe and kayak regatta hosted by the Calgary Canoe Club located on the Glenmore Reservoir.
