Our U16 & U18+ Sprint Racing program for ages 14+ as of January 1st, 2020 is a sprint development program designed around Canoe Kayak Canada’s Learning to Compete and Training to Compete stages of the Long Term Athlete Development plan. Athletes will work with our Head Coach to learn about advanced sprint canoe and kayak technique, specific strength and fitness development, and detailed race preparations and strategy development. Athletes in this program will train based on a Yearly Training Plan that will include goal-setting, sport nutrition, and self-care and motivation strategies. We also focus of building a strong base for long-term athlete development with regards to technical understanding and an appreciation for the sport and physical exercise for life. Athletes in these programs will be training to qualify and compete at provincial, national, and international level competitions based on their individual needs. Please see the EOD Regatta schedule on our website parent information section for information on regatta dates.
Participation in these programs is subject to approval from the Head Coach.
