Development Summer Program
Sackawa’s Development Summer Program is available for children who are at least 8 years of age by December 31st of the current year.
Developing athletes will train on the water, in the gym, and through a variety of cross-training activities to be in peak physical condition.
Athletes will learn skills to gain speed on the water, strength, technique, and endurance.
Our Summer Development Program runs from July 6th until August 21st, Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 4:30pm, with early drop off and late pick-up available and included. Due to our National Competition there is no U10 program the last week of August (August 24-28).
Parents can drop off their athletes between 7:30-8:30am and pick-up between 4:30-5:30pm.
For all registered athletes over 10 years of age, we have extended our program to 4 months (June to September). The June and September practices will be held Monday to Friday from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. This is an optional extra practice opportunity with no extra registration fee required. Come get a jump start on your summer training!
This program includes mandatory regatta participation throughout the summer.
Although many athletes have their own equipment, Sackawa provides boats and paddles, except for life jackets, which are required with the new ADCKC policy.
Registration fees include our $100 Fundraising Fee, which you can earn back by volunteering at our club events. Registration fees also include all CKC/ADCKC raising fees & insurance. This year our registration fee also includes Sackawa’s new team singlet. Please come to one of our spring open house event to order the correct size as it may take about 2 weeks to receive your singlet.
Cost off the summer Development Program varies from $695 to $945 depending on athlete’s age.
