RCBC paddlers compete at Nationals & Junior World Championships
Nationals mark the end of our official season. In August, four RBCBers competed in the USAC/K Sprint Nationals in Oklahoma City, OK, while two RCBCers competed simultaneously at the USCA Nationals in Newaygo, MI. RCBC member, Sarah Tokos, was named to the US Junior World Team. She competed with athletes from over 70 countries August 1-4 at Welland, Ontario. Sarah made it to the semi-finals in both her events, the 200 and 500 meter races. We are very proud of her accomplishments!

Interested in canoe and kayak racing?
We paddle both marathon (5K or more) and sprint (fast, short,
Olympic-style) style. By
almost any measure, RCBC has been a resounding success in achieving our mission
of “introducing youth to flat-water canoe and kayak racing”. Over the past six
years, we’ve placed high at the local and national levels. And it’s
all been a lot of fun!
We have the best, nicest, most supportive kids around who have a blast together, get to be outside, learn cool skills, camp, and travel together to competitions! If that isn't enough, paddling is the single best upper body/core workout and cross training activity for all sports! It combines balance, core strength, and aerobic conditioning, yet doesn't feel like a long, hard, or boring "work-out".
Join the Minnesota tradition
of canoe racing!
Have fun, get buff, and paddle
with a great group of young people!
