Grades 6 - 12

School Groups

At Leduc Boat Club (LBC) we are growing our water sport programs to introduce students to a variety of boating for students from grades 6 -12.

As a starting point, LBC recommends the two-person canoe, recreational solo kayaks, and the 20 paddler dragon boat. We can, depending on group size, age and schedule, offer instruction in SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) and rowing.

Younger paddlers can be accommodated by special request and with extra support from the school.
