Every athlete aims to travel through a specific water distance paddling either on his/her own or in pairs of two, achieving the best possible time. Special Olympics kayaking is a flat-water racing event and one of the newest Special Olympics sports. It requires fundamental abilities in order to be safe and successful.

If you are an athlete or coach interested in participating in kayaking, select your county on the right to find your area program.

The culminating event for kayaking takes place at the State Fall Games in Ypsilanti in September.
