Membership and programs are all being done with the new Ramp registration tool. A 'How-to' register with RAMP is available.
We are happy to be able to offer a summer program (July-August) to our athletes.
If your athlete wants to start paddling before then, consider BCC's Spring Paddle programs that begin in May!
Be sure to renew or become a Member of BCC, BEFORE registering for paddle programming.
More information for the Masters on the Masters Program Page.
During the summer, programming for U8-U12 athletes includes coached practices scheduled throughout each weekday, combining dry-land training with small and crew boat coaching and team-building experiences. Athletes also have the opportunity to compete in fun inter-club regattas on Lake Banook. Because of their age (12 and under), these athletes need supervision at the club when not in a coached session. Banook Canoe Club’s weekly Activity Camp is a great option to provide these athletes with day-long supervised activity, coordinated by child care and coaching staff.
During the summer, U14-U16 athletes programming includes coached practices scheduled throughout each weekday, combining dry-land training with small and crew boat coaching and team-building experiences. Athletes also have the opportunity to compete in regattas on Lake Banook, including Qualifying Regatta for the CKC Sprint National Championships.
For our High Performance athletes (U15+) and is by coach invitation ONLY.
All athletes are required to practice in their assigned group and time.
BCC tries to keep the cost of programs as low as possible for its members. The registration fees do not entirely cover the expenses associated with running the programs and the true cost of programming is subsidized by other Club revenue. When we have short term closures of the Club due to COVID, the expenses associated with the programming remain.
For this reason, we are unable to offer refunds or prorated fees for the time the Club is closed. Without the fees paid by athletes for off-season programming we cannot pay our employees, pay the insurance that covers the Club or pay the costs associated with the building itself.
For these reasons, in the event that the club is once again required to close due to COVID, refunds will not be offered and monthly installment payments will still be due on time. We thank you for your understanding.
