Both of my sons began paddling with Chinook in 2012 when the club started and both had very positive experiences. My youngest was successful at Trials last month, making it on to Team BC for Canada Summer Games 2017. It's been such a pleasure to have these guys enjoying the outdoors and having a blast with the friends they've made with other great kids right from Recreational to Competitive. It's the only Sprint Canoe Kayak club in Victoria and their coaches are respected and top notch. I couldn't recommend Chinook highly enough especially if you've got younger kids who want to paddle and you want them to learn to paddle safely.

Chinook is a wonderful club! Three of my kids paddle with Chinook and they all love it. Seeing them have fun, compete, and make friends from other clubs all over the province has been amazing to see. They train hard but they also have tons of fun and I couldn't ask for anything better than that.
