Beginner Racing League (BRL)

Beginner Racing League racing is an 8-week program for ages 7 -17. Held in the Spring and the Fall of each year, participants learn paddle basics, good sportsmanship, and teamwork. The grand finale is the “ Braff Fungatta” where the BRL teams race against each other on the 1996 Olympic course for individual medals and team bragging rights.

Teams practice twice a week for 2 hours, and you can pick a team that works with your schedule. Our trained coaching staff provides a safe and fun environment for your child to learn canoe and kayak racing skills, and your child will beam with pride when they beat their personal best time or move up to a “tippier” boat.
