Sprint Racing Program
The Sprint Team is led by former Canadian Olympian kayak athlete Jason Rusu. Ever since his first paddle on the west arm of Kootenay Lake Jason knew that Nelson is one of the best locations to support a sprint racing canoe and kayak program in the country.
Monday and Wednesday: 4:30pm - 6pm
Saturday 10am - 12pm
Practice is always held at the Rowing Pavillion, at Lakeside Park in Nelson, BC.
Shoulder season paddling requires appropriate cold water immersion apparel.
Example of appropriate clothing for spring paddling is:
- lycra tights/leggings with a loose fit over shorts
- polypropylene long sleeve underwear
- lighter shirt
- light windbreaker
- water shoes/flip flops
- change of clothes/warm up clothes
