Come join a gathering of women for two days of paddling on the Upper Red Deer River. We will be based again this year at the Hunter Valley Adventures facility on the south side of the river. Come for a lesson or just to paddle with other ladies. Last year's event was a big success with everyone who remarked about how wonderful it was to share their paddling with other women.

Join the AWA team and our club coaches for 5 days of training in all aspects of our beautiful sport. Based at the Canoe Meadows campground for the week, the coaches will work with athletes on slalom, canoe polo, downriver and freestyle and we get a lot of great river running too. Get prepared for the 2016 Alberta Summer Games. Follow up the camp with the Provincial Championships from Friday to Sunday. Good competition and great prizes make this a great way to end the summer before heading back to school.

UAPS and Ceyana Canoe Club (Eric Lund and Mark Lund) are planning to run a Level 1 Pool/Lake Instructors course this spring in Edmonton.

We're starting the evening of Friday May 2nd and continuing through the weekend Saturday and Sunday. As in years past we will likely arrange to have a (large) number of beginners available for a session on Sunday afternoon so that we can evaluate instructors as well.
