Canoe Kayak

The Maskwa Aquatic Club (Bedford) invites anyone who is blind and visually impaired to get involved with Para Canoe!

This program is free. There is no cost to participate.

There are recreational and competitive opportunities available and Para Canoe runs year round.

This could be an excellent cross-training opportunity for goalbal athletes.

Spring through summer, and into the fall, participants are on the water in kayaks or va’a boats.

During winter months, participants transition to what’s called dryland training in an accessible gym. This can include weight and cardio training.

Training is 3 times a week (Monday & Wednesday 6PM-7:30PM, Saturday 12PM-1:30PM)

Para Canoe coaches are committed to adapting the sport and training for all.
