Swimming and other activities that get you IN the water are fun fun funnnn!

Did you know that there are more than 30 sports that you can do on top of the water?

Would you like to …

  • Row a boat
  • Paddle a canoe
  • Kayak
  • Kneeboard
  • Paddleboard*
  • Sail
  • Water ski
  • Windsurf

Most of these activities require that your parents or other adults go with you. Many of them require some instruction so you can do them safely.

Paying your own way … on the water

If you don’t own or have access to watercraft, most of these activities cost money. Here are some ways you might be able to earn the money needed to start rowing, paddling, kayaking, sailing, and boating:

  • pulling weeds
  • raking the yard
  • walking pets while their owners are at work
  • cleaning out a garage or attic
  • holding a yard sale
  • recycling cans and bottles
