This is our Intermediate team and members of the Blades enjoy competing in local festivals. In the past they have participated in the Fanshawe, Hamilton, Woodstock, Stratford and Christie Lake festivals. Festival fees vary and will be discussed at the team level once the season begins.
If you are not interested in competing at festivals, we would ask that you please consider registering with the Waves recreational team. The Blades set a faster pace at practices and races and they will push your physicality and cardio. Although they do take new paddlers anytime, they would prefer that non-experienced paddlers start with them before June.
Their goal is to continually improve and place well at regional festivals. Practice times are Monday and Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings. While the team requests that you attend at least 2 of the 3 practices a week, attending all three will make you and the team stronger, building strength, timing and endurance.
• Monday & Wednesday 6:30-8:00pm (including pre-practice warm-up)
• Saturday 8:30-10:00am (including pre practice warm-up)
• Paddles and PFDs are provided
