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.
The Theme of the day: The Model Athlete
The factors with a beneficial effect to performance development. We aim to cover:
- Balance of training with school work
There were be 2x on water sessions, workshops and an open Q&A sessions for parents and coaches.

There will be a 45-min presentation once the athletes have started their 1st Session.
Any questions relating to this RSP day should be directed to Mark Hoile (Talent Pathway Manager – Canoe Sprint) (firstname.lastname@example.org), or contact Daniel Thompson (email@example.com) for any administrative questions you may have.
