We are offering men's and women's, sizing charts below.  From past experience, the women's singlets work for youth sizes.

We are excited to say that summer registration will be opening on February 1st at 7am.  This year we will only be offering full summer programs.  Programs will start on July 4th and end on August 26th.  Programs run from 9am to 4pm, with 15 - 30 minutes before and after for early/late drop-off and pickup.  These times will be finalized closer to the summer due to Covid.
 
If you are interested in a spot, please don't wait too long after February 1st to register as some groups were filled up on the first day.  Programs available this year are:
 
Kiddie Kayak - Participants must be 5 as of January 1st - Cost $1510
 
U10 Boys - Boys who were 8 as of January 1st - Cost $1195
U10 Girls - Girls who were 8 as of January 1st - Cost $1195

We have moved to a new registration system.  In preparation for registering, I would suggest that you go onto the registration site and create a user name.  This new site is not as updatable as Sportical was, so please be sure to register in the correct program.  When using the site, the athlete is the 'Person' and the parent is the 'Guardian'.  The link is:  https://ckcmember.ca/org/Cheema
 
If you have any questions regarding the summer program, please contact our registrar.
