RCKC boasts one of the best competitive paddling teams in Western Canada, with athletes competing successfully at events across North America – including National and International competitions. Our certified coaches work with the athletes to develop their speed, endurance, strength and power in a fun and safe environment. Competitive athletes can qualify for funding assistance based on performance levels which can be used for training, equipment, or travel expenses. Nutrition, goal setting and sport psychology sessions are often incorporated into training camps. Year-round training is provided and we are often on the water throughout the winter months, giving our athletes an advantage over the rest of the country. Whether travelling throughout BC, the country, or the world, many friends will be made in a sport which can be enjoyed for life.
