Yorkshire Slalom Training & Events

Clubs and coaches from the region come together to provide slalom coaching days and training camps for paddler in the region.  Training is open to paddlers of all ages and abilities (depending on the venue) and rely on volunteer coaches from clubs across the region giving up their time to run these sessions. Regular regular training days run through out the winter months at various venues, and week long training camps run at Grandtully in the spring and in August.

If you are coming to a training day, please email training@yorkshireslalom.co.uk with your name, a mobile number and current division. This helps us to plan groups for sessions in advance, and to let you know if there are last minute change of plans or cancellations due to river levels.

Dry Training Day

December 1 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

This is the fifth time we have put on a dry training day. The aim is to help ensure you have the knowledge to train off the water as part of you winter training.

Who is it for:  The day is open to all slalom paddlers of all ages, their parents and coaches working with Yorkshire Slalom.

Parents are requested to stay with paddlers especially as some of this information is to help you support them, and avoids repeated questions later on. (You may be able to join in some practical sessions if you wish and there is space)

Cost:  Yorkshire Region are funding this course so it is FREE to attend for Yorkshire Paddlers and parents. All of the coaches and session leaders have volunteered their time.  Without their skills, knowledge and dedication to the sport we wouldn’t be able to put this event on. They are happy to answer questions so don’t be afraid to ask.

Content:  We are covering physical training that you will be able to do off the water to improve your strength and power for racing as well as looking at some other important areas (mental preparation, anti-doping).

We have tried to ensure much of the content is different to the previous year, so it is not just a repeat for those that attended last year.

Please be aware that sessions are a mix of theory and practical, although we will try and make all sessions as interactive as possible.
