Adult Learn to Paddle 2023

by Banook Canoe Club
Learn to Paddle

The Learn to Paddle program is designed for those adults with no sprint paddling experience- or very minimal and not comfortable yet in a boat.

Though the focus will be largely on kayak style paddling, we will also touch on sprint canoe paddling with an opportunity to go out in the C15.

By the end of the 4 week session, you will know how to get in and out of a kayak, what to do when you tip and how to get yourself back to the dock and often people can paddle a more stable kayak.

Planned Schedule:

Session 1 - June 14 - July 7

Session 2 - July 19 - Aug 11

Wednesday & Friday evenings from 6:00pm- 7:00pm

Please note, that the schedule may change to accommodate coach availability, and all registrants will be informed in advance.


$100 for non-members

$75 for members (discount will be applied after registration by Membership Director)

For non-members, should you decide to join the Banook Canoe Club and the Masters program, the $100 will be applied to your annual membership fee.


Registration is handled through the RAMP system by selecting the "Adult Learn to Paddle/Recreational Programs". There is also a "how to" available for first time users of the RAMP system.
