EWP’s 50th Anniversary Event Series


Posted on May 2, 2023

The Commemorative Event Series is in honour of the Edmonton Whitewater Paddlers and marks 50 years as a paddling club. Through the summer we will visit a number of locations we have frequented over the years. The Club will produce a special commemorative t–shirt which will be given to those dedicated boaters that participate in a minimum 4 of the six scheduled events. An extra award will be given to those that participate in all of the events. The shirts will also be for sale for those unable to make it out on the water. If you’re interested in attending any of these events, please send us a message through our website email: website@paddleewp.ca

Youth Lessons

EWP offers classes to kids as young as 6 years old and emphasizes a fun learning environment in order to develop basic kayaking skills. Older youth are transitioned into our youth program (or start there) and are exposed to all aspects of the sport, including whitewater, rolling basics and canoe/kayak polo. There are many opportunities to get folded into the main EWP training group that practices in an adjacent pool at the same time when they aren’t participating and helping with lessons themselves.
