  Racing Skills Day at Leighton Buzzard Canoe Club on Saturday 19th May 2018

Leighton Buzzard Canoe Club, in partnership with British Canoeing, are delighted to be running a racing skills day on Saturday 19 May 2018 at Leighton Buzzard Canoe Club.

This is the second of the Racing Skills Programme (RSP) days. The first Racing Skills day which took place at Reading Canoe Club in January was a great success with coaches, athletes and parents coming away from the day very positive. The whole idea of the RSP is 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 looks 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.

There is no, one way to develop talent and with the knowledge within the room, there could be a coach who could help you with any thoughts or challenges you may have as a club coach.

Racing Skills is open to those coaches, parents and athletes who wish to compete in racing kayaking or canoeing. It will mostly be aimed at U13 upwards.
