Coaching & Squad Training

 

The club runs two coaching squads – River Rookies and the Development Squad.

The River Rookies squad is for beginner and novice paddlers of all ages. For more Information on River Rookies click here.

The Development Squad is for intermediate/advanced paddlers including paddlers progressing from the River Rookies and ocean ski paddlers. This squad focuses on the Sprint Kayak discipline (although many of the squad also compete in Marathon events), coaches good technique, fitness and nutrition.
