The Greater Edmonton Racing Canoe Kayak Club offers a 6-month on water sprint racing program for the development of competitive sprint athletes. The program is open to paddlers 14 years and older who have demonstrated a high commitment level and the potential to compete at the national level.

The sprint racing program includes the development of a personalized training program which incorporates short and long term objectives. The program includes:

  • minimum 8-10 training sessions per week
  • personalized on water instruction and coaching
  • stroke analysis through on-water coaching and video analysis
  • personalized physical conditioning program
  • dry-land training which may include agility, strength, speed and endurance training.

On-water training begins around May 1st and continues through to October. In October, the focus switches to dry-land training and conditioning programs: running, skiing, swimming, weight training and other fitness activities. Team members planning to compete for spots on the provincial and national teams will usually attend spring training camps in the US and Europe.
