Manitoba Paddling Association

The Manitoba Paddling Association functions as the provincial sport governing body for local competitive canoeing, kayaking, and dragon boating. The association encourages the community to stay physically fit while still having fun through a variety of events such as races, year-round programs, and annual Dragon Boat festivals. Events change according to the season, and include summer camps that school beginners in the kayaking basics, spring training that introduces tougher techniques for competitive teams, and winter programs that offer opportunities to stay fit on shore, such as cross-country skiing, indoor circuit and strength training in the snow.

I enjoyed the opportunity to learn the basics of kayaking and look forward to going back to learn more; as well as taking advantage of using their equipment on Thursday or Friday evenings.
