2024 Registration now live!

Registration is now live, and will be open until May 15th. Act soon, as these teams will fill up fast! 

This year we are going back to a regular team format: each team will be made up of similarly skilled paddlers, with a pre-determined set of races with opportunities for some of the teams to choose an additional race.   

You are WELCOME to join more than one team (note the only overlap will be at the Barrie Festival, with PaddleAvengers, PaddleStrong, and TWSS all participating – you can only paddle on ONE team for this specific event).
