Opportunities for Coaches, Officials, and Volunteers

Manitoba Paddling Association relies heavily upon the efforts of a large base of volunteers, officials, and coaches. We could not hope to achieve what we do without their support and contributions.


Each year, a number of activities are arranged to foster coach, official and volunteer development. Development clinics are offered annually, and by specific request to MPA. The schedule for 2017 will be released soon and most clinics take place at the Manitoba Canoe & Kayak Centre at 80 Churchill Drive in Winnipeg. 

Below are handouts from previous clinics:

Kayak Intructors' Clinic

Dragon Boat Instruction & Safety

MPA Tips for Safer Paddling, including Cold Water Safety

We are fortunate to receive generous support from Sport Manitoba, Coaching Manitoba, Canoe Kayak Canada, and the Grey Cup Legacy Fund for our coach and official development initiatives.

Coaches, officials, and volunteers are encouraged to contact us to volunteer or apply for positions with the Manitoba Paddling Association or to Inquire further about coaching or officials development opportunities. Likewise, individuals interested in volunteering or officiating at our events can review our Calendar of Events page and for more information.
