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.
16/17 November 2019
Once again Yorkshire Slalom is booking exclusive water time on both courses over the weekend.
To better manage numbers and space on the Olympic course we will only have a maximum of 20 paddlers on the course in each session. To ensure that we can fit in everyone that we expect to want to book places we have booked additional water time, therefore Olympic paddlers will be allocated to either group A or Group B sessions.
This is suitable for paddlers in Prem to Div 2, and may be suitable for competent Div 3 paddlers (on the Legacy course). If you are unsure whether this is a suitable training camp for you, please speak to your club coaches.
The England Slalom Talent Programme have been working with the Teeside White Water centre in order to identify additional opportunities for access in order to increase white water exposure for our athletes based in the Northern region. A number of exclusive slots of the centre at times beyond the normal opening/operating hours’ have been negotiated, thus increasing access available.
The costs will be £5 per athlete per session and this will be subject to review. To run more sessions we have to evidence that there is demand from slalom focused groups in the North, as a result we will be opening the below sessions up for any non Talent Programme boats to access this water (see access conditions below), this is in an effort to help better cover these costs and extend this access further in the future.
For more details and to book onto into a slot please email firstname.lastname@example.org on weekdays between the hours of 08:30 – 16:30pm. Please note: Payment will need to be made prior to attending the session.

For a while I have been putting out information about and getting interest from people about doing the new British canoeing Slalom Coach Award. I have quite a list of people interested, but I’m sending this to all in case anyone has missed the previous information.
We now have courses arranged for the first stage of the training, and agreed funding from Yorkshire Slalom to help support those that want to do the courses.
If there is demand, we will set up additional Core Training courses, and we’ll be setting up Slalom Discipline Specific training as soon as we can.
Unfortunately Yorkshire Water are not able to provide water releases for the Div 2 race on 15/16 September 2018. So we are going to have to cancel the race. I’m afraid we have to accept that while we have had some rain, it was still below the monthly average for rainfall in July, after 2 months of virtually no rain in May and June. In such circumstances a release is going to be unlikely.
I know this is disappointing and frustrating, but its completely outside of our control.
Thanks to all those who had already volunteered their time to help run the event.
As you will be aware we have races coming up as follows:
If you are able to help out in any way please contact Esther to let her know and volunteer your preference for what you would like to do. As ever, we need Judges, course builders, control people, kitchen people, safety people, people to pack up on Sunday etc etc for both events.
As usual we will be on site from Friday morning each weekend (from 9:30am) building the course and setting up marquees etc.
I suggest we have a meeting after prize giving on Saturday 24th June (div 2 weekend). All involved or interested in Yorkshire Slalom are welcome.
If you are going to be at these training weeks and want coaching we need to know asap (if you haven’t already done so). Please email email@example.com with your name and division.
Lee Valley Weekend
As you may have seen on the facebook group the dates of our Lee Valley training weekend is 10/11 November. The weekend will be a similar format to previous years with training slots on both the Olympic and Legacy courses. Full details and booking info will come out in September, but wanted to share the dates as I know people like to get their accommodation sorted early.
(Note if you are wondering whether to travel down on Friday evening or Saturday am, the first Olympic slots will be at 9 and 10 on Sat morning, the first Legacy session will be at 12noon on Saturday).
