Do you like being on the water, being part of a team competing in individual and multi-person events?

The 4th largest Olympic sport, Canoe/Kayak racing combines skill, teamwork, endurance and strength in single, double and four-person boats. With this life-long sport, we strive to help you develop your physical capacities, as well as learn important life skills such as love of sport and exercise, goal setting, discipline, and passion for life. Lifelong friendships are formed, experiences are shared, and character is built.

At Cascade we incorporate the latest scientific training methods in developing great paddlers and great people.
