For each regatta, it is a full day, or sometimes, a weekend. SLCC arranges schedules for all races for each participant to be organized for each regatta. It is up to the parent and child's discretion how much they would like to race and/or be involved.

WHAT IS THE TIME COMMITMENT FOR TRAINING AND RACING?
We have a variety of boats at the club. We have our sprint competitive boats, as well as our recreational boats. We have all different levels of sprint boats so our canoe kids programs can try different boats during the day for competition. We also have paddle boards for staff use and safety boats. For our day camps, we have canoes and safety motorboats.
There are four or five regattas that SLCC participates in each summer. You have to ensure that your child is there one hour prior to their race time to get prepared. SLCC arranges transportation of boats, but it is the parents responsibility to arrange transportation for their child. For more detailed info upon regattas and a good resource is our parent handbook.
