Paddlers on dock next to boat and paddles

Young people are encouraged to sample kayak racing through one of our Demo Days or through the Introductory Clinic offered every June. No prior kayak experience is necessary to discover the fun of going fast in a skinny boat. Non-paddling members or adults who join workouts occasionally may elect a “friend of RTR” membership. Contact us to learn more.

River Town Racers’ volunteers are indispensable to our program. Volunteers coach, drive, feed, and cheer us on at races. Our all-volunteer leadership team includes board members and coaches, plus other parents who help out on a multitude of ad hoc projects. Message us to discuss how your talents can be support our organization.

Athletes, too, provide volunteer services that support the entire club. Everyone learns how to repair boats, load a trailer, and take on other responsibilities to make training and racing go smoothly.

Individual donors and nonprofit foundations are essential to River Town Racers’ operations. Giving makes it possible for us to offer memberships or travel assistance to athletes needing financial aid, offset the costs of transporting equipment, and maintain our safety boat, among other things. We couldn’t do this without you! Donate here or contact us to discuss your contribution.
