There is no better way to get Calgary teenagers hooked on kayaking than the Junior Development Program. Offering both summer and winter programs the JD program helps to instill a love of paddling and a healthy respect for the river.
The winter program is 10 session (once a week) in the SAIT pool working on everything from basic strokes to different Kayak rolls to flat-water Freestyle tricks.
The Summer program consists of 12 sessions on various rivers around Alberta, honing river running and freestyle kayaking skills. This program also focuses on leadership and river safety and rescue techniques giving paddlers all the skills they need to be safe and fun boaters for life. At the end of the summer program teens get the opportunity to go on the Junior Development road trip taking advantage of 5 days on Alberta and BC’s best intermediate whitewater.
