Chisholm Ski Club Paddle Sports (CSC Paddle Sports) is a new Club endeavor to promote year-round outdoors and healthy lifestyles within the River Valley area.

CSC’s vision is to encourage, promote, and host recreational summer activities maximizing on the abundant and scenic natural resources within the Upper Androscoggin River watershed. CSC Paddle Sports will evolve into multi-dimensional events over the next five years to include local, regional, and national-caliber paddle sports.

Downriver racing, bi-monthly citizens paddle sports river cruises, spring white water racing on the Swift River, white water rodeo, festivals on the Androscoggin Rumford Lower Falls (Knapp’s Pitch), and white-water beginner and intermediate instructional course are all under consideration.

To kick-off CSC Paddle Sports, CSC will be hosting the first-ever Androscoggin Sprint as part of the Androscoggin Adventure on August 28, 2021, in conjunction with EnvisionRumford. The Sprint will consist of traditional paddle sports racing classifications plus unique local classifications and fun competitions. See Event listings for details.
