In preparation for the summer sprint canoe-kayak competitions, athletes ages 11 to 21 will be lead through physical conditioning, paddling techniques and competitive readiness activities.
Throughout these training sessions the athletes will progress through and beyond the basic skills of sprint paddling and learn competitive paddling skill development, fitness, nutrition and racing technique. Paddlers will learn about water safety rules for sprint boats, how to balance, paddle, and train in sprint kayaks and canoes. Participants will be lead through on and off water training sessions. During each session they will do a warm up, practice/work out and cool down.
To reinforce safe paddling skills, all participants are required to wear life-jackets or PFDs any time they are on the water or the dock.
Training will follow the Long Term Athlete Development Plan of Canoe Kayak Canada.
Cost: $100 per session
