Kayaking

This page draws together kayaking-related information for all of Special Olympics. The coaching materials and other links will help you get a good sense of how this sport contributes to Special Olympics.

Water Racing

Every athlete aims to travel through a specific water distance paddling either on his/ her own or in pairs of two (2), achieving the best possible time. Special Olympics kayaking is a flat-water racing event where athletes compete either on their own or as a pair with another athlete. Kayaking is one of the newest Special Olympics sports. It requires fundamental abilities in order to be safe and successful.
