Racing Program

Coached workouts are held to develop and promote paddle sport athletic competition at all levels.
These workouts are held up to three times per week for each of the men’s and women’s programs
during the pre-race and racing season (March through September). Workouts are typically 2 hours in
length or longer and are led by the head coach or the division coaches. In addition, separate coached
workouts for first-year racing paddlers or novice paddlers are conducted by the novice coaches for the
first part of the racing season (March through July). Novice paddlers “graduate” to the division workouts
by the end of July each year. Coached workouts for keikis (youth paddlers) are held as demand warrants.
Instruction programs are designed to introduce, inform, and train paddlers of all skill levels in all aspects
and areas of canoeing. Typically, the Keiki program is active from May to July of each year.
