A Letter from the Executive Director
South Florida Canoe Kayak Club from Dreams to Reality
SFCKC is a dream that is rapidly becoming a reality as we transform into an International Training Venue for a multitude of Paddlesports . This dream was born from our passion for the people involved in the sport, from all over the world. As four, out of our eight children were involved in some facet of this sport, we became keenly aware, very early on that this is not your “typical sport”. It is unusual, in that it is not just an individual or a team sport, but a “family of athletes”. This is why our mission statement declares that we are “athlete focused”. Our desire is to uniquely meet the needs of every athlete training at our venue and to treat them like family. This sport has opened our eyes to variety of cultures and backgrounds and has taught such life lessons as teamwork, individualism, self-respect, endurance, persistence, tenacity, and sportsmanship, just to name a few.
I hope that you will take the time to watch a short video from the Executive Director and hear why SFCKC was created.
