The Development Program is an introduction to competitive canoe and kayaking. It is designed for paddlers ranging from the 14 to 19 years of age who have less than three years of competitive experience.
The paddling season runs from May to October. There are approximately 6-8 practices per week. This program is focused on developing the physical, mental, and psychological aspects of athletes as they transition into more competitive phases of their athletic career.
This program will support the continued development of proper canoe/kayak technique, general and sport specific conditioning, team boat skills, and racing performance skills. This program will also develop positive teamwork, competitiveness, commitment/goal orientation, confidence and sport character behaviours.
Off water summer training includes running, soccer, dry-land games, plyometrics, medicine ball workouts, and weight training.
