Our Big Canoe Fitness sessions are focused on using the big boats to gain strength, power, and endurance. This is a paddling workout, you will learn some things about paddling the big canoes, but that is not the primary focus.
These sessions run every Thursday night depending on weather and water levels, come early to help get the boats to the water, bring your own paddles, pfd's, water bottles, and any other paddling gear you may require.
These sessions run Thursday evenings, 6:45 - 9:00 pm from April 27 till August 24. Once registered Darryl will forward a google spreadsheet so that you can report on session you will be attending.... full attendance is the default.
The start date, and all subsequent sessions depend on appropriate river conditions <600 cms.
The club is collecting a $25/month fee this year to help with program costs (insurance fees are up), equipment maintenance and replacement (we're looking to replace the Banana this year!). Club equipment is available for new paddlers for the first session or three, then participants are expected to provide their own life-jacket, and bent shaft paddle. If you've not paddled big canoes before it is best to get in a session or two before acquiring your own paddle. For each session a water bottle, rain gear, and dry clothes are good to bring along.
You must be healthy to attend any sessions, please do a COVID/Flu/Cold self assessment before each paddling session. If you are not feeling well please do not come.
Registration will be available from March 15 to August 10.
