Ottawa New Edinburgh Club Summer Day Camps begin
Registrations for ONEC’s Summer Day Camps, offering tennis, sailing, rowing, big canoeing and stand-up paddle-boarding (SUP), are up well over last year. Operating from July 2 to August 23, half or full-day participation is offered with pre- and post camp supervision.
ONEC has just started a new Junior Tennis Program for kids aged seven to 15 years of all skill levels, organized by the newly-appointed tennis coach, Chris Field. “His 25 years’ experience as a Junior Program Director and Performance Coach in Toronto and Miami, and of working with adults and kids of all levels, is excellent for us,” said Andre Barnes, ONEC’s Tennis Director. Adults will also benefit from clinics and private lessons.
ONEC Rowing is offering two additional Learn to Scull sessions on Monday and Wednesday evenings starting June 10. Other refresher courses will also be available. ONEC Sailing is attracting more young professionals. Training is provided at no charge in CL16s or single-handed Lasers. Once members are “checked out,” they can participate in the racing programs on Tuesday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
Finally, Paddling, introduced in 2018, is continuing. Big Canoe Adventure Excursions (hosted by ONEC) organizes guided tours that explore historical, Indigenous and natural sites around Ottawa. Renowned canoeist Max Finkelstein will also be giving a Big Canoe course on June 15, 2019. See www.onec.ca/forms.
ONEC dates back to 1883 and is one of Canada’s oldest multi-sports clubs. For more information, visit www.onec.ca.
