Juniors Club

CHAMPION LAKES BOATING CLUB JUNIORS

For those who are looking for a social kayaking group for children aged 8-12 years, then the Sunday group will be just right for you, encompassing all disciplines of kayaking – flatwater sprint and marathon, canoe polo and slalom in a fun and non competitive environment. They are normally run Sundays 3:30-5:00pm unless major regattas or visits to other clubs/venues are scheduled. There is also a Tuesday and Friday afternoon session 4:30-5:30pm and other sessions in or around State Championships in March.

For youths aged 13 years and over,  who are after a bit of serious fitness, there are morning sessions Mon-Friday 5.45-7am. Times will vary over the winter months, be sure to contact us to find out more.

CLBC provides qualified coaches for the program at nominal monthly fees. They also provide a limited number of club boats and paddles for juniors but juniors will be encouraged to purchase their own paddle soon after learning and then possibly purchase their own boat to maximize personal development after training for  3-6 months. There will also be an option to lease a club boat on an annual basis. The program will be influenced by seasons and Paddle WA (our State Sporting Association) or other paddling events which CLBC juniors will be encouraged, not pushed, to participate. These events will determine the paddling discipline and training the participants will be involved in preparation for individual or team competition. A Calendar of events will be provided by CLBC coaches for parents and juniors to help plan their season.

SUN SMART

Champion Lakes Boating Club encourages all participants to be Suns Smart…cover up, add sunscreen and wear a hat. CLBC encourages all paddlers wear long sleeve rashies for sun protection. Our club also sells rashies with the club logo.
