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!
