SRCC offers competitive canoe and kayak programs to a wide range of participants – from novices to athletes preparing for national and international competition. SRCC also offers programs for masters’ athletes who paddle for fun, fitness, and, in some cases, train for competition.

Athletes in the club’s Competitive Programs take part in local, regional and national-level competitions through the May to August competition season. The Development Program racing season runs from mid-June to mid-August and includes competitions organized within Saskatchewan. For older, experienced athletes the competition season begins in late May and culminates with the National Championships at the end of August. Participants register for programs on a six-month basis:

  • April 1 to September 30 - the Summer on-water season focuses on instruction and training in racing canoes & kayaks.

  • October 1 - March 31 - the Winter dryland season focuses on development of endurance and age-appropriate strength capacities.
