Benefits to Membership in SRPC
The most important benefit of membership in SRPC is that you are part of a community-oriented recreational society whose main goal is to promote not just individual team goals but recreational and lifestyle goals that benefit all members of the community as well as future generations.
We encourage and promote everyone to participate: men, women, and youth regardless of age, or prior experience or abilities. We have all women’s teams, mixed gender teams, seniors 55+ teams, youth teams and recreational kayak groups. Our goal is to provide you with all the instruction and equipment needed to participate in fun, enjoyable and above all safe activities in the water. New friends are made, health and fitness are improved, and new skills are learned through qualified experienced instructors and coaches.
Learning to appreciate the quiet beauty of this unique environment in the Shuswap is a side benefit of getting out on the lake. SRPC is also welcoming more youth in our community who want to be competitive and we have lots of action for you in the dragon boats, outrigger canoes and rowing – our fastest sport on the water!
You will be welcomed and we will teach you all you need to know to get started at a pace that is safe and comfortable for you. There are paddling opportunities for every need whether your goal is just to enjoy making new friends, getting out on the water, and improving your fitness or to participate in competitive events at various festivals, locally, around the province and for those driven to higher levels, on the international stage.
