Learn to Paddle Update
- July 20, 2021 -

Come and JOIN the Calgary Canoe Club!  


We hope that you had a wonderful two weeks and your paddler had as much fun as we did. If they enjoyed the Learn 2 Paddle program, they are welcome to try out Intro to Sprint (2 week) or join the full-time Sprint Team directly, which runs all year long in seasonal programs.

You do not have to commit to the program full time as we understand many paddlers have other commitments. The Sprint team on-water portion runs May until October and costs will depend on when your paddler can join. The sprint team opens every 2 weeks during the summer. Please see the website for the details and contact your paddlers coach if more information is needed.

The summer sprint programs run Monday to Friday 9am-4:30pm until August 20 for U14 paddlers. There may be options to participate at a regatta as we determine if regattas will be added to our schedule this season.

July 26 start date, register here

August 9 start date, register here 

*Please note that the Sprint Team requires a membership fee be paid as well ($100 for under 18), which we will invoice once we receive payment for the Sprint Team.

Fall programs will start in September and will run till the end of October, prices and dates TBD

Website Directions 

After Friday the 23rd, your child will be eligible to join the sprint team (congratulations!) which means that they do not need to join the Intro to Sprint program. However, you are welcome to join that program if you are not certain about participating for the whole summer. 

The following is a guide to navigate the website

Firstly, click on "Returning Paddlers"

Then click on "Go to Sprint"

Scroll down to the bottom and choose "Sprint Team (all ages)"

Friday Fun Regatta

We are having a fun regatta this Friday, July 23, at the Calgary Canoe Club. In the essence of team spirit, we will be dressing up! Our theme this week is Star Wars. Parents are welcome to come and see your paddler strut what they have learned over the past 2 weeks. We will start at 9:30 am and the fun races go for about 2 hours. 

Weather Update

Please pack changes of clothes and a towel. We are starting sprint boats this week and it is common for kids to fall in the water. Because the smoke has been covering the sun, our mornings have gotten cooler. Please be sure to pack warm outer layers!

HELP CCC get new boats & maybe WIN BIG !

Considering the current AHS guidance, we have opened a small number of additional spaces and are again using crew boats (multiple paddlers in the same craft). CCC operates within AHS guidelines but if you are not comfortable with the CCC daily environment, please let us know.
Athletes are not to attend if:
  • In the past 14 days, they had exposure to a person with a probable or confirmed case of Covid-19.  
  • If displaying symptoms or possible symptoms.
Alberta Health Self Assessment Link:

If unsure, isolate and get tested, do not attend if unsure.
