The club is proud to announce that we have hired a new full-time coach for all our paddling needs. We also have two Canada Summer Job grants for assistant instructors. So, this will be a great summer of paddling in Chilliwack. There will be lots of new programs posted as soon as Brendan gets settled in our little community.
