Canoe SA is committed to providing opportunity for the inclusion of people of all abilities in recreation and sport paddling.
PARACANOE – go fast on water
Paracanoe is the inclusive program for people who want to be involved in the sport of Sprint Kayak Racing. Races are held over the distance of 200m in a Sprint Regatta. Canoe SA works in partnership with Wheelchair Sports SA and the Australian Paralympic Committee to assist paddlers to achieve their best.
Not satisfied until you reach the top? Be the best in the world! For the first time, in 2016, para-canoe Sprint races will be included in the Rio Paralympic Games and you can start targeting the 2020 Tokyo Paralympic Games now!
PADDLEABILITY & Recreational Inclusive Canoeing
Canoe SA will work with community groups to provide opportunities for people with all abilities to have an introduction to paddling.
Canoe SA provides a number of programs for inclusive recreational paddling that are outlined below:
Canoe SA partners with Wheelchair Sports SA to provide recreational canoeing activities for people with a mobility impairment. The program is called Recreational Inclusive Canoeing (RIC).
Canoe SA Team Paddle Challenge provides an opportunity for your group (whatever their abilities) to compete in a weekend of canoeing and orienteering on the Murray River.
