Ladies Slalom Weekend

WWKC is very lucky and appreciative to be hosting another fantastic women’s weekend with Olympian Hannah Craig who is traveling down to the club to do the two day workshop on the 8th & 9th of March 2014.

All ladies welcome, spread the word!

This is an open event to club and non club members to promote ladies in slalom and to those who have never been in a slalom boat before and are interested in just giving it a go. There is just a small booking fee of €10 per person to secure your space. The proposed plan for the two days is to cater for people who have not done slalom before and for those who have been to Hannah’s (or other) coaching sessions before. [one_fifth]

8th & 9th March, 10am start time, 4.30pm finish time, on both days.
Bring appropriate paddling gear as the weather will still be cold. Leggings, river shoes or booties, dry cag, fleece, BA, river or polo spray deck if you have one, polo boat or river boat (in case we don’t have enough slalom boats for everyone, we will share throughout the weekend) paddle, lunch, warm drink, Yoga Mat. Bring plenty of warm clothing, as the day will be both on the water and off the water sessions
The 2 days will include a mixture of 2 water sessions and a class room based session per day
The weekend will most likely cover the following areas:
  • Body position and body rotation, breakdown of the paddling strokes
  • Use of the flat water Slalom course – maybe a mini competition
  • A Fitness for Paddling work shop – this is why you are to bring a yoga mat (or towel)
  • Hannah will give a few talks on very motivational topics, confidence, tackling fears, her Olympic journey and fitness-nutrition etc …
