“Solo Experienced” 1X WEEKLY series

The Experienced OC1 training series places experienced paddlers in 1x weekly advanced coached sessions designed to challenge the abilities and develop the potential of each participant. Because of COV2 regulations as well as limited equipment and dock space, paddlers applying for this program will be placed by the coaching group into one of four available weekly practice sessions.

Coaches will work to accommodate the individual scheduling preferences, bearing in mind the challenges of allocating paddlers across limited seats. After submitting your application (links below), we will provide you with registration links for specific weekly practices. If the assigned training sessions cannot work for you, please let us know so that we can contact wait-listed paddlers. Scheduling challenges aside, we are confident that these classes will provide challenging, performance-enhancing and fun.
