Volunteers are the life's blood to our organization. Without your help, the Club cannot function. It is through your volunteer time that the regattas can take place and the money that helps pay for our coaching and equipment gets raised.
Corporate Sponsorship and Events
The Balmy Beach Club is a not-for-profit organization and, as such, needs to raise funds to be able to offer affordable programs to people of all ages, including those with disabilities.
Cold Water Training
In the spring and fall, the water in Lake Ontario can be very cold. To ensure the safety of all our members, strict rules govern on water training during those seasons
Safety issues can never be ignored in our sport. Because most of our training is done on Lake Ontario waters, the cold water temperatures present a hazard. Safety can't be taken for granted.
Caring for Boats
The Club has a wide range of canoes and kayaks and associated equipment to meet the needs and abilities of all the participants. Please treat with care. A boat in good condition is a pleasure to use.
What to wear
On water practices and regattas are held during all types of weather with some more advanced groups on the water from early spring to late fall. It is essential that you or your child be prepared.
Managing a capsized boat
Remember…. Those who tell you they have never fallen in are lying. It is a part of learning and improving. All involved, from paddlers to cox to motor boat drivers must be aware of, and comfortable with, the proper way to handle such a situation.
