LCKC’s racing teams are for athletes who have learned the basics and are ready to take the sport to the next level (with coach approval). The training program is tiered to serve intermediate to Olympic-level athletes including adults. Training is year round.

The program:

  • Develops discipline, focus, goal setting and other invaluable life skills
  • Provides the local community with a unique sport and an Olympic caliber training program
  • Encourages each athlete to reach their maximum potential
  • Creates opportunities for local, regional, national and international competitions
  • Promotes a sense of “team” among the athletes.

Developmental 1 & 2 Teams

Our young athletes begin their sprint training on the Developmental 1 Team and then move up the ladder to Developmental 2 Team.  These youth are recruited from the Beginner Racing League program and can move up with coach approval.

Athletes advance their paddling skills by developing the balance skills required to paddle tippier boats, cross-training to enhance their athletic abilities, and competing on the local, regional, and national level. While this program is focused on skill development and training, the athletes still have a lot of fun in the process.

Equipment is provided for all Developmental 1 athletes. D1 practices three times per week during the school year and four times per week during summer. D2 athletes practice four times per week during the school year and up to 6 times per week during summer.


  • Developmental 1 – $125 per month
  • Developmental 2 – $150 per month
  • $50 annual equipment fee
