Pickering Rouge Canoe Club - Inspiring young paddlers in our communities since 1958

Partner Associations

Pickering Rouge Canoe Club competes within the Western Ontario Division, one of six divisions of Canoe Kayak Canada.

The Ontario Canoe Kayak Sprint Racing Affiliation (OCSRA), which represents the sport of Olympic Sprint Canoe Kayak racing, is the collective voice for canoeing and kayaking in Ontario and is our Provincial Sport Organization. The main function of OCSRA is to implement, manage and monitor programs and activities that are provincial in scope. The primary responsibility of the OCSRA is athlete development.

Membership

Members are our biggest supporters. By registering for a PRCC program (other than summer camps), you are considered a member of the club. Membership is for the calendar year in which you have a confirmed registration. Members can attend Club events, run for Board positions and vote at the Club AGM held annually in November. Members are also required to contribute volunteer hours. See our Jobs & Volunteering page for opportunities on how you can make PRCC the best it can be.

Canada Summer Jobs Grant

PRCC received funding from the federal government through its Canada Summer Jobs Grant in 2017, 2016 and in earlier years. This grant helped to fund wages for Camp Counsellors and Bantam Coaches, allowing PRCC to offer reasonably priced children’s programs.

Quest for Gold

PRCC is grateful to the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport for awarding us a Quest for Gold grant that provided us with 3 years of funding to help support a full-time coach and allowed us to hire our Head Coach Rebecca Fanok in 2016.

PRCC received OSRCF funding from June 2016 to March 2018 for “The Enhanced Paddling Development Program” to build a cohort of  paddlers aged 9-12 by providing coaching, equipment and monetary support. We are grateful to the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport for, among other things, contributing to our small fleet of mini sprint boats including K1s, C1s and our mini K4. These boats have allowed us to build our U15 Sprint program.

Thank you to our local Canadian Tire for supporting PRCC when we did a large purchase of children’s life jackets and kayak paddles. The manager was extremely helpful.
