Competitive Program

 

The Manitoba Paddling Association is proud to offer competitive programs for youth & adults at our training centres in Winnipeg, Selkirk, Sanford, Minnedosa, Brandon, and St. Theresa Point.

 

There are a number of competitive disciplines active in Manitoba, including Olympic Style Sprint Canoe & Kayak, Marathon Canoe & Kayak, and Dragon Boat. You can review the information posted under "Summer Camps, Lessons, and Membership" for an overview of the programs available at your nearest centre or contact us if you require more detailed information.

 

The Manitoba Paddling Association is fortunate to have a staff of excellent coaches who develop talented athletes to represent us at the Canada Games, North American Indigenous Games, National Championships, World Championships, and the Olympic Games. They participate in rigorous year-round training programs and compete in a number of regattas during the busy summer competitive season. Please review Jerome's Training Blog on our website for the latest training schedules and updates. Parents of athletes participating in our youth competitive programs can review more information from the Provincial Coach in our Program Overview and understand our travel and supervision practices in our Travel Policy are available for competitive sprint, marathon and dragon boat disciplines.


Youth Paddling

Are you considering registering your youth in our Youth Canoe and Kayak paddling program that runs during the school year? During the summer, we practice at 9 AM weekdays and during the school year, we meet on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4:30 to 6:30 PM and Saturdays from 9 to 11:30 AM.


When the season prevents us from paddling on the water, we turn to other fun sports such as soccer, skiing, skating on the river trail (the trail comes right by our club), running, weight training, training on the stationary bikes at the Sport Manitoba Building, and swimming.


In addition, your youth will have the opportunity to participate in Training Camps in both Canada and the USA.
