Junior Term Classes at Swan Canoe Club

Junior Programs at Swan Canoe Club

Here at Swan we run two different kinds of paddling classes, Slalom kayaking and Sprint kayaking. Our Slalom Program is lead by ex-olympian Zlatan Ibrahimbegovic and under his guidance many young athletes have had the opportunity to represent their country. Our head Sprint kayking coach Amanda Simper is a teamboats guru having represented Australia at the Olympics in a K4. Amanda has also seen her athletes suceed on the world stage. 

Whether kids want to have fun out on the water or train to be the best, there is a place for everyone at Swan Canoe Club.
