Welcome to the home of the Yukon Canoe & Kayak Club, a leader in the Yukon paddling community since 1961. Our Mission is to inspire and support Yukoners to safely paddle and responsibly explore the Yukon’s river systems. During the summer under the Midnight Sun, YCKC hosts beginner paddling programs, clinics, day trips and social weekend paddling events. During the winter, there is weekly kayak polo at the Canada Games Center pool as well as monthly skills sessions. YCKC is the Sport Governing Body for freestyle and slalom padding for the Territory.

Please be on deck at 7:30pm to help set up equipment so we can be playing at 8 sharp. As in previous years, this is a drop-in program. You pay your entrance fee to the CGC front desk and receive a wristband -YCKC does not collect on deck.

As it is drop-in spots are first come first serve. Having said that, there are some limitations for safety reasons. Some of the games do get... physical...and we want to make sure that players have the proper skill level before they play. If you are not sure of your skill level or want to learn how to do a wet exit you can contact us and we can arrange something to get you up to speed.
