Turning people into paddlers, athletes into champions, one adventure at a time!
Funded by Sport Manitoba, the Manitoba Paddling Asociation is a Provincial Sport Governing Body for competitive canoe, kayak and dragon boat in Manitoba. Our clubs offer year-round programs for youth and adults to maintain fitness and have fun on and off the water.
MPA staff and volunteers are responding to this situation by adapting our programs to meet public health recommendations.
We have made the diffcult decision to cancel our annual Manitoba School Dragon Boat Challenge and postpone the River City Dragon Boat Festival to the tentive date of July 17-18. Otherwise we remain optimistic that 2020 programs will proceed as planned and encourage your registration. We look forward to seeing you on the water!
