Canoe instructor Maeve McManus

Was born and raised in Whitehorse, Yukon where she started whitewater canoeing with her  dad and older sister Aislinn at a  young age. From 2016 to 2018,she competed in sprint canoeing and attended the Sprint Canoe and Kayak National Championships in 2018. Most of her instructing  experience comes from working with kids through Flatwater North summer camps and sprint paddling coaching from 2018 to 2020.

Maeve has worked  with Yukan Canoe over the last couple of years, slowly gathering experience teaching whitewater paddling. “ I love instructing paddling as it is a fun rewarding skill that is extremely valuable in a place like the Yukon. Paddling is important to me as it has always been something I have always done with my family and friends.”
