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.
