Not So Florida Paddle Camp (NSFPC)

 

Canadian paddlers serious about their training typically travel to Florida to tune-up their paddling skills before our lakes defrost. Can't make it? Fret not! You can basque in the warm glow of our indoor heater and tune up your stroke in our indoor paddling pool. This 4 hour course will be taught by paddling Coach Terence Yu and is held in Ontario’s only Dragon Boat Paddling Pool. Course time will be spent as follows: 30% Basic Paddling Fundamentals and 70% paddling time and video analysis. The course is geared for athletes of all skill levels looking to get ready for the on-water season.
