note NOC YPT
Back in my teenage years(not so long ago...) I was on the NOC YouthPaddling Team. It's a group run through NOC for kids up to 18. They have group paddling sessions and trips throughout the year. I met some of my best paddling buds through the YPT.

I'm not sure who's in charge now but Jon Clark and Tosh were running it when I was there.
