Flatwater Racing Skills Day hosted by Southampton Canoe Club

Southampton Canoe Club in partnership with British Canoeing are delighted to be running a racing skills day on Saturday 28th July at Southampton Canoe Club, Woodmill Activity Centre, Woodmill Lane, Swaything, Southampton SO18 2JR.

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 with On-water and Off-water presentations for all. It will be aimed mostly at U13 upwards.

This will be the third of the Racing Skills Programme (RSP) days following on from the success of the previous two Racing Skills days which took place at Reading CC and Leighton Buzzard CC earlier this year. 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 while meeting different paddlers and coaches to learn from each other.
