Juniors

PRCC’s Juniors used to be purely Outrigger paddlers. However we have started expanding our program including SUP, surf-ski, and C-1. In 2012 we sent some of our athletes to compete in the IVF World Sprints in Calgary. Meanwhile the PRCC Juniors have also competed in local outrigger races and have performed exceedingly well and continue to do so. The OC-6 crew has won the Junior (under-19) division at CORA nationals for the past four seasons. In the summer of 2014, PRCC sent three athletes to the BC Summer games to compete in sprint canoe, sprint kayak, whitewater kayak, and outrigger. Besides the racing there are other fun events and practices that happen throughout the year such as the spring paddle to Tickleberry’s, and the “Waterman (or Waterwoman) Challenge”.

This summer (2018) we plan to send a few paddlers to the BC Summer Games in Duncan.  Paddlers will have the opportunity to compete in sprint kayak and sprint canoe events on Lake Cowichan.
