Bantam Racing (Age 11+)

For experienced and returning paddlers: year-round programs for kids aged 11 - 14.

The focus is on learning paddling skills, enjoying the beautiful Cardiff Pond Park, making friends, and age-appropriate athletic training that follows Long Term Athlete Development principles. The goal is to develop water sports skills and confidence while having a great time in a safe and supportive environment. If you are new to the sport, the Intro to Sprint Program is a great introduction to the sport that is available in our summer programs.​

Paddlers must demonstrate a minimum swimming ability before getting in a boat. Summer sessions of Sprint Paddling include the opportunity to race at a local and out-of-province regattas. Participants will learn competition skills and rules for sprint canoe/kayak and will participate in on and off-water training sessions.

All canoes, kayaks, paddles, and PFDs will be supplied for use during camp hours and each camper will get a free water bottle and sport pack with the club logo with an additional GERCKC Summer Camp AWESOME T-SHIRT!
