This team was launched in 2012 by Alicia Williams at the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport (MTCS).  The team will practice once a week in May and June and then races at the OPS Canada Day Regatta at Toronto's Centre Island where they will return for their SIXTH year.

May 15th Update:  The team has one practice under its belt with coach Natalie and the second praxctice is soming up Thursday May 18th.  Registration is still open for the SIXTH season of the MTCS team.  There is just 1 spot left on the team.  It is open to anyone whose schedule fits that of the team and who wants to join an established team with a great core of paddlers.  New paddlers are always welcome! 

Last year the team had great results at the 2016 OPS Canada Day Regatta.  They were the top seed of ALL teams going into the final race and ended up with 3rd place bronze medals in the "A" Division, just 0.5 seconds away from 2nd place and just 0.95 seconds away from gold, in a thrilling final race.  Note that the team will consider continuing past Canada Day with more practices and races, but that will be decided later among those who sign up for the standard 8-week program with the Canada Day Races.  That will be a separate fee and there is no obligation to continue for those who sign up for this program.
