About Us

The Peterborough Canoe & Kayak Club (PCKC) is a not-for-profit corporation that was established in July 2017 to bring sprint canoe-kayaking and other watersports to Peterborough. We plan to make Little Lake the hub for paddling in the County of Peterborough and surrounding areas. The PCKC, with the generous support of the City of Peterborough, are contributing to the well being of our community.

Head Coach

Darren Mossman has joined the Peterborough Canoe & Kayak Club to share his passion for paddling with the Peterborough Community. As a paddler and a coach, Darren has been involved with sprint paddling for over 15 years. Darren was previously the Head Coach of Pickering Rouge Canoe Club and has also worked for the Cobourg Dragon Boat & Canoe Club. Over the years Darren has worked with all different types of paddling including, outrigger, stand-up paddle boarding, recreational canoeing, and sprint canoe/kayak.
