Looking for new members to come try out on-lake activities including dragon boats, outrigger canoe, kayaks and stand-up paddle board

The Harrison paddle sports club is looking for new people for our youth team (Optimist Eagles ) and our adult team (The Crusaders). We are also taking names for a Thursday night “learn to paddle” group for people wanting to learn the basics from start to finish.

Location will be Rendall Park at Harrison Lake, on the east side of the main boat launch. The fun starts at 1 p.m until 4 p.m.

We will have a dragon boats, six-man outrigger canoe, kayaks, and a stand up board for you to try. We are looking for all kinds of people from fit to wanting to get fit.

Paddle sports know no age restrictions. Youth is 10 to and including 18. When we have enough paddlers we could have groups from 19 to 29, 30 to 40 and so on. Right now we’re needing your help to make this come true. We invite you to come out with us and give these sports a try. i know you will be glad you did.
