VYPC - Creating Paddlers for Life

VYPC practices are currently cancelled.  We will follow government guidelines as to when to resume. Registration is open for all spring and summer programs.  There is no need to pay until programs resume.  Fees will be pro-rated if appropriate.

Our vision is that every young person can experience the benefits of a lifetime involvement in paddling.

The Victoria Youth Paddling Club is a registered non-profit society dedicated to developing, promoting, and running programs leading to fun, fitness, skill development, and competition in kayaking and canoeing. The club’s operations are supported by a facility and equipment partnership with the Ocean River Paddling Club.

We offer a safe, affordable and fun water sports club for youth ages 9 and up. On-water activities are led by qualified coaches and are held on the Gorge Waterway. We run a year round program with two sessions: Spring/Summer (April through September) and Fall/Winter (October through March). In addition we offer weekly, half-day camps throughout the summer.

We are able to accommodate new paddlers at any time and can prorate fees accordingly. Please contact our commodore at commodore@vypc.ca for current program costs.  Payment can be made by e-transfer, Paypal or by cheque.

There are grant opportunities available for assistance with program fees through the following programs:
