This summer-long, full-day program is suited for both novice and experienced athletes alike. Activities include several on-water practices per day, running, soccer, outdoor games, and body weight strength training with plenty of water and sunscreen breaks mixed in.
Paddlers will learn about water safety rules and how to balance, paddle, and train in sprint kayaks and canoes. They will also swim and engage in recreational boats such as SUP boards. Each session they will do a warmup, practice/work out, and cool down. There will be opportunities to race on weekends, and racing skills will be taught as part of the practices.
