Coaches strive to help each child be the best paddler they can be weather or not they make a racing crew. Please let your child’s coach know if you will be traveling or be unable to attend a race. It is expected that all paddlers attend the races to support their crew and club.

How can I help?

Lanikai Canoe Club is an all volunteer organization, we love help! Parents will be required to volunteer at the George Perry Race sponsored by Lanikai Canoe Club. This is the one race a during the year all children will race. We ask for parent volunteers for set up/take down, food service and merchandise sales. Together we make this a great event every year!

Each regatta has an assigned crew responsible for set up and take down. Please check with your child’s coach or set up/take down here for the dates your child will be expected to help.
