Do you have kids ages 8-17 who are interested in paddling a 6 person Outrigger Canoe?

We welcome all kids older than 8 years old.  Youth under 8 allowed on a case by case basis. All youth under the age of 18 must be able to swim.

What to Wear

All youth are required to wear a PFD. We will have PFDs and paddles available, but bring a PFD and/or paddle if you have one. Adults paddling during youth practice must wear also wear a PFD.

  • Dress in layers, avoid cotton. Rain gear help to keep the body warm and insulated. Tights worn for other sport work well.

  • Wear shoes that you don't mind getting wet- neoprene booties with wool socks will help keep the feet warm.

  • Bring a change of clothes and a towel.
