Keiki and Junior Paddling


Kikaha has a legacy of keiki (children) paddling with the largest outrigger program in the Puget Sound area. Through the promotion of outrigger canoe racing and Hawaiian culture, children can learn teamwork, skill, water safety, and  love and care for the ocean and fitness. Kikaha’s Youth Program is for children ages 5-18 years: Keikis 5-12yrs, Juniors 13-18 yrs.

Our season runs from April – June for Keikis and into July and August for the juniors, competing in sprint races around Puget Sound. Our first practice is Tuesday, April 9th at 4:30PM.


We practice 3 days/week at the Kikaha site on Foss Waterway in Tacoma.
Tuesday & Thursday 4:30-5:30pm
Saturday 11:00am-12:30pm
1st practice for 2024 – Tuesday, April 9
