Paddle sports activities are promoted by the Northern New York Paddlers,  a group which actively participates in events promoted by New York Paddlers Racing Association.

Monday Night Paddling on the Mohawk

Join us at 6:00 PM any Monday evening May thru September for paddling on the Mohawk. We start at Kiwanis Park in Rotterdam.

Everyone is welcome, as are all human-powered crafts (canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards).  

Meet at Kiwanis Park (Rte 5S Rotterdam Junction, west of Schenectady).  This is for recreational and instructional paddling.  Bring your own equipment (boat, PFD, paddles) or call/text Kim at 518-421-2939 by Sunday evening and equipment (no SUPS available yet) will be brought for you.  

There will always be someone to paddle with.  Arrive in time to be on the water by 6:30.  We paddle about 40- 60 minutes then enjoy the camaraderie.  Bring your own snacks/beverage, but we usually share

Wednesday Night at Aqueduct Park

Time Trials will be held on Wednesdays at Aqueduct Park (where Route 146 crosses the Mohawk at Rexford). Registration is 6 pm and start is 6:30pm. This is a 3.6 mile race against the clock. Cost is $10.00, but free to SWC members.

Canoe and Kayak Races

The Northern New York Paddlers sponsor several club races through out the season. Newbies, novices, sometimers, manytimers, real fast paddlers, semi slow paddlers, serious paddlers and glad-to-have finished paddlers are all encouraged to attend. 

Participants should have a life vest (PFD).
