Cheema Aquatic Club was founded in 1969 in Waverley to provide aquatic sports opportunities to the youth in our area. We are primarily a sprint canoe and kayak racing club. We also offer 2 week introductory camps each summer.
Cheema has a long history highlighted by our National, International and Olympic success.
Cheema is operated by a volunteer Board of Directors and is supported through membership fees and the fund raising efforts of our membership, combined with the kind generosity of local businesses and patrons.
Our club's facilities include a large boathouse which houses the athlete's personal race boats and the club's boats and paddles, The separate two story clubhouse has office space, changing rooms, weight room, washrooms and a large meeting room.

This weekend our Coaches and athletes will resume training at Cheema. Thanks again to the Keevill's and Maskwa for sharing their lakefront during the last six weeks. With the boathouse project moving along on schedule we will be fully operational with a brand new boathouse and renovated Clubhouse to greet the Summer Program. Thanks to our Project Team and all those who donated for making this happen.
