Creating Paddlers for Life - 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).

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

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