Strathcona Girls Baptist and Trinity Grammar Schools have kayak programs based at Fairfield Canoe Club. Both school groups are coached by FCC members and the schools are associate members of the club. FCC hosts one the Winter series races at the Strathcona campus in Hawthorn.
Many of the schools paddlers have since joined the club and continued paddling. Parents of the students have also discovered paddling at one of the clubs 'come and try days" for parents of school paddlers and gone to on to become active club members. Several Trinity parents are currently members of the club board.
