About Us
TEN time National Champions, the Gig Harbor Canoe and Kayak Racing Team provides opportunities for local youth and adults to compete regionally, nationally, internationally, and ultimately at the Olympic level in the sport of canoe/kayak racing.    

GHCKRT inspires and enables athletes to achieve excellence in life through what they learn in the sport of canoe/kayak racing and challenges them to dream. GHCKRT coaches intentionally encourage and teach athletes through challenges and struggling to achieve.  

Athletes typically begin participating with GHCKRT through one of the many summer camp programs offered annually at Skansie Park in Gig Harbor. These camps introduce athletes to both canoe and kayak, and allow each individual to experience both boat types before choosing one with which to continue training. Athletes may be invited to join the Development Team, and after some time there, may be extended additional invitations to join different training teams, progressing with age and skill.
