Special Olympics / Paracanoe

The Special Olympics program (formally Paddle-ALL) was introduced by Canoe Kayak Canada over 10 years ago. This program promotes participation in the sport of Sprint Canoe Kayak for individuals with disabilities.

Recreational and sprint canoes and kayaks are used to introduce paddlers with intellectual and physical disabilities to the sport of sprint racing. The program includes a safety orientation,

technical instruction, and instruction by experienced

coaches. Each paddler will have an experienced paddling

partner for 1:1 support. Here at the St. Albert Canoe Kayak

Club, paracanoe athletes are included in our high performance training groups. To find out more about the competitive programs

we offer, visit our Youth Competitive Sprint Programs page!
