Leave a comment

The 2011 ICF Dragonboat Club Crew World Championships scheduled for July 21-24 in Toronto will have Paracanoe and I.D.(Intellectual Disability) events!  The Dragonboat is a great ‘first contact’ boat for our sport.  The inclusion of events for these new paddlers is a great way the event is aligning with CKC’s strategic goals to pro-actively reach out to Canadian’s with physical and/or intellectual disabilities.  Our whole sport is enriched by their participation!  

Take advantage of the World Championships to boost the Para and I.D. programs at your club!
