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.
Racing skills is open to those coaches, parents and athletes who wish to compete in racing kayaking or canoeing. This day will be aimed at athletes aged 12-18 years old.
Please see here for information on the upcoming racing skills day.
