Learn to Train Skills Camp


The Learn to Train Skills Camp is the entry level program to the Nelson Kayak Canoe Club Sprint Team. Developed through fun games and drills, athletes will improve paddling technique, balance and will have an opportunity to experience team boats. This program has a smaller ratio of athletes to coaches and is an ideal learning environment. These two week sessions are a mandatory starting point for athletes under the age of 12 or athletes trying the sport for the first time.


Practice Details: 

Tuesdays and Thursdays: 4:00pm - 5:30pm 

Practice is always held at the Rowing Pavillion, at Lakeside Park in Nelson, BC.
