Welcome to VYPC
- Creating Paddlers for Life -
COVID-19 Update: VYPC practices are happening! All practices being conducted under the COVID-19 guidelines from the BC government including wearing masks when on land, social distancing and sanitation of boats and other equipment. Please check back here for any updates
Our vision is for young people to 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 firstname.lastname@example.org for current program costs.
There are opportunities available for assistance with program fees through the following programs:
