Coaches and Staff

Head Coach:

Chris Chaisson

I started paddling at a very early age as paddling had been in my family for many years. I grew up spending every day of the summer hanging around the club gaining new friends and learning how to paddle. As I got older I moved up in the club and became a high performance paddler until I was 18, which is when I found my passion as a full time coach. I started coaching part time when I was 15 and moved my way up from coaching Atoms, to coaching high performance athletes. I have been a Head Coach for the last 9 years and will be entering into my fith summer as the Head Coach of Mic Mac AAC.

Coaching Philosophy

My number one coaching philosophy is to have FUN!!! And I do my best to show kids how much fun this sport can be.  I also believe that our sport is a lifestyle not just an activity that fills times.  Through paddling I try to teach my athletes the value of hard work, dedication, leadership and respect, as I believe these are most important values of sport and life.
