About Us

The name of Sackawa comes from “Sackville on the Water” and was chosen from club names submitted from school age kids in a competition.


Sackawa offers a great summer program for both new and experienced paddlers,
as well as a year-round development and training program for our competitive athletes.
The summer program provides a balance of paddling and land activities, ensuring a summer of fitness, learning, friendship and fun!
