NELSON KAYAK CLUB

UNDER THE AUSPICES OF THE WHITEWATER KAYAKING ASSOCIATION OF BRITISH COLUMBIA, THE NELSON KAYAK CLUB SERVES TO PROMOTE SAFE  SPORT AND RECREATION  ON FAST MOVING WATER IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD.
MOSTLY. THIS MEANS PLAYING ON THE SLOCAN AND KOOTENAY RIVERS. IN THE PAST, WE'VE HELP TO ORGANIZE THE  CANADIAN CHAMPIONSHIPS  AT SHOREACRES, WHITEWATER RODEOS BELOW THE BRILLIANT DAM AND NUMEROUS RACES ON THE SLOCAN. WE HAVE CLUB BOATS FOR JUNIOR DEVELOPMENT AND PLENTY OF BEGINNER KAYAK COURSES AT THE NELSON AQUATIC CENTRE . WE ALSO SUPPORT RIVER PROTECTION AND PRESERVATION.
        IT'S GOOD CLEAN FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY ALL YEAR ROUND .
