Membership Information

Membership is for everyone. Young or old, competitive or recreational, with physical disabilities or not, as a single or as a team, and as an individual or as a family.

Benefits Of Membership

As a member, your privileges includes:

  • training from professional coaches
  • use of paddling equipment

Membership at RCKC is also recognized provincially, nationally, and internationally. When competing in the regattas, the results are recognized by official racing organizations. If the level of the athlete is high enough, they can go to try out for the Olympics. Since the coaches are certified, the members will be assured that they are trained proper paddling techniques, and that the training is high quality caliber. It is an ideal place to meet other athletes interested in the paddling sport.
