We are active year round with a variety of activities. Check out our News & Events page for details.
In the winter, we host weekly lessons and practice sessions at Kinsmen Sports Centre. We also host several competitive events for canoe polo and have members participate in slalom events around the province as well.
Winter pool sessions include introductory and intermediate lessons for adult groups. If there is demand, we offer rolling courses as well.
Specific Youth Programs develop skill and fitness and feed into summer camps, trips and competitive opportunities.
Over the past few years Canoe (Kayak) Polo has enjoyed a growth surge reflecting it’s value as a tool for practicing skills while providing the fun of a team game, which for many has become a year-round source of enjoyment.
With the coming of warm weather, the Club activities move outside. Mid-week sessions in the City Parks or the river promote regular exercise and opportunity for practicing your paddling skills.
Summer whitewater tripping gets us outside for camping and paddling.
Weekend trips have taken us paddling on a number of Alberta Rivers: the North Saskatchewan, The Lobstick, the Red Deer, the Brazeau, the Ram, and the Fraser, just to mention a few.
Our club has an enormous fleet of all types of kayaks and paddling gear. Your membership gives you access to use this equipment freely at club events or for a small rental fee when independently using the gear. Although Club Trip Leaders are not guides, they are familiar with trip rivers in addition to being technically skilled with whitewater rescue and safety so your river experience is fun and safe.
To keep you informed, EWP will send out emails to its members and regularly update our website and Facebook page with available program offerings.
Thank you for choosing to participate with EWP! We hope your initial involvement is enjoyable, fulfilling, and leads to further activities with our Club and the sport of kayaking.
