Join us for the 6th Annual Gator Bait Hatchling, a kayak race just for kids ages 5-13. The course length is tailored to each age group and ranges from 250 yards to 1 mile. Our goal is to introduce kids to the sport of kayaking, foster a love for the outdoors, and instill a desire to protect their environment for generations to come. There are 2 races per age group; Rental Kayaks (provided to all), Individual Kayaks (for those that own their own kayak), and Any Kayak (combination of rental and individual). Kids are encouraged to participate in as many races as they wish.

The event costs $20 per racer and includes:

  • Kayak rental
  • T-shirt
  • Awards & Prizes
  • Swag Bag
  • Insurance required by the American Canoe Association

Participation is limited, so register as soon as possible!
