Sunday 13th June 2021 – Youth Ski Development Squad
We will not be running the normal 8.30am Sunday Session on Sunday, June 13th . On this day we hope to have all of you join the Ski coaches / mentors in a river paddle challenge! This is a flat-water river course, entry is super easy, and the event is only as competitive as you want to make it. This is a fantastic opportunity to participate in a 6km Novice Course or 11km Short Course. We will be taking the Club Trailer with Ski’s to the Challenge.
As a guideline on your regular Sunday Sessions you are all paddling over 6km! The 6km course is well within your capabilities and will be a great hit out to build endurance, confidence and we will ensure we have mentors on the water with you. We would love to see you at this challenge. Please RSVP to this email to allow me to allocate ski’s. They will be allocated on a first in basis.
