Kawaikini Canoe Club encourages all men & women to

Kawaikini Competitive paddlers meet every Monday, Wednesday, and
Friday at 4:30pm for warm-up and in the water around 5:00pm.
The coach determines the type of practice and skills practiced dependent
on the type of events coming up.
We also meet on Sundays at 8:30. This is an instructional day for all members followed by a relaxed paddle for those that are in the competitive program and for those that are not. Also, this day we meet afterwards at Olympic Cafe for Bloody Mary Sunday and breakfast most weeks.

All paddlers are welcome. Members are assigned as much as possible into canoes as cruiser or competitive preference. If you are looking to see if you would like to join us this is the best day for guests as weekdays are reserved for our race practice. We welcome people to come for 2 weeks as a guest before they are encouraged to join Kawaikini Canoe Club.
