Formed in September 2005, the strength of Canoeing Interest Group (Canoeing IG) currently stands at a total of 40 paddlers.
Despite being one of the youngest in the local canoeing scene, the team has achieved numerous triumphs in inter-tertiary competitions, and has been nominated yearly for Team of the Year at RP’s Sports Excellence Awards. Through unwavering commitment and perseverance, Canoeing IG continues to propel itself to new heights.
The paddlers also believe that sports can be used as a social tool to make a difference for the society. They are strong supporters of Hair for Hope, and it has been a tradition for them to play a part in raising funds for the Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF). In 2011, they organised the RP-CCF Family Sports Day in collaboration with RP’s other sports IGs. The event received much positive feedback and the team looks forward to more of such opportunities to contribute to the community.
