The Racing Skills Programme is established to encourage those athletes who love to paddle, whether it be in Sprint, Marathon, WWR, Paddle Ski etc, and who would like to develop their skills in different environments whilst meeting different paddlers and coaches to learn from each other.
Racing skills look to bring coaches, athletes and parents together to share knowledge and to allow those to be better informed to aid the growth of the young paddler in a fun and inventive way. This day will mostly be aimed at athletes aged 12-18 years old.
