Join the FCRCC Youth Sprint team! These programs are for those who want to learn more advanced paddling skills and try out racing. These racing programs also include the summer camp options!
Intro to Paddling - FUNdamentals & Foundations (U10) (*ages ~7-10)
Junior Racing Development - Training to Train (U14) (*ages ~13-14)
Note: Program Ages here are used as a guideline to represent typical athlete pathway in this sport but is not strict. In the end, coaches will put athletes in training groups most appropriate to their current skill level where they will learn the most and build from there.
If you’re a new paddler under 10 years old, please sign up for Intro to Paddling – Fundamentals and Foundations
If you’re a new paddler 10 years old or older, please sign up for Advanced Paddling Fundamentals – Learning to Train (e.g., if you are 14 and new to our program, you will first start out in Advanced Paddling Fundamentals to acquire initial skills and balance and build from there with the intention of getting you up to speed with your training age group. Likewise, if you are 12 and have excelled tremendously, we may ask you to start training with the U14 group!
Our sport, club, and community is all volunteer run! Whether it be fundraising, officiating at a regatta, helping with grants, etc., we need parents to contribute a minimum of 15 hours this season to help the team out. A list of volunteer positions will be posted shortly! If you don’t want to volunteer, you can simply pay an additional $100+gst when you register to opt-out.
