Phoenix is a 55+ senior women’s team which loves to be out on the river for the exercise, the environs, the companionship and the coffee afterwards.

From the beginning, Team Phoenix has been all about enjoying our beautiful Fraser River come rain or shine, in the company of a wonderful and supportive group of women.  We have a lot of laughs, but we work hard too – followed by a pub lunch or coffee and a treat of course! And once in a while, we come home from a regatta with a bit of bling around our necks.  We aim to be as inclusive as possible and to accommodate all abilities. So never think you’re too old or too infirm to paddle. After all, our most senior team member is now a vibrant 88 years young!  Over the last few years, we have opted to keep up our exercise by paddling once or twice a week all winter long as well.

Phoenix practices twice a week, on Mondays & Thursdays, 10:30 to 11:45
