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.
