O Our program focuses on introducing athletes with physical or intellectual disabilities to the sport of CanoeKayak. All aged 12+ are welcome at no cost. No experience is necessary. Please contact Lucy Traves if you are interested or have any questions about the program: ​

Our program runs Tuesday evenings from 6:15pm-7:15/7:30pm throughout the year. We provide land training (weights, circuit training, ergometer workouts) and on water kayaking (when weather allows).

We are looking for volunteers to help coach our PaddleALL program! We are working on growing the program and with more athletes we need more coaches! If anyone is interested we will teach you what to do and how the practices work. Every bit counts, even if you’re only available one night of the summer!
