SUP Sisters- The History
The SUP Sisters program started in 2013 with 6 wonderful women who opened their minds and their hearts to try something new. By 2015 the SUP Sisters had grown to have 4 sold-out program times on Wednesdays at
9:30am, 4:00pm, 5:30pm and 7:00pm with many women repeating the program for the 2nd and 3rd time.
We've offered program options for Mother-Daughter, a Ringette Team, and a Teen girls all by requests from women like you!
Each year we have grown the program we have sold out.
2019 we added a 2nd day of women on water
2020 Covid-19 We decreased to 6 weeks but remained at 8 hours with a reduced number of participants per program to be in compliance with local restrictions.
Adding a 3rd day to the lineup and had 60+ girls & women on the water for the summer.
2021 Covid-19 program change remained in place with another 60+ girls and women on the water for summer & fall programs.
2022- We can't wait to see you on the water!
