Gold Medal Connections <----->"pathways to excellence"


{er2}
OUR PROGRAMS

Gold Medal one & two-day kayak and canoe clinics offer a brisk progression of instruction on both flat and moving water. We analyze stroke and body mechanics, often reviewing video so that each student can get a clear mental picture of how he/she compares to a demonstrated model.

Clinics focus on basic paddling techniques, while relating them to the cutting-edge concepts used by international champions.Well executed fundamentals are universal in this way and can be applied similarly to any kind of paddling.

Gold Medal three-day kayak and canoe camps offer an extended opportunity to work with Olympic level instructors in flat, moving, and whitewater venues. Each day builds upon a series of activities designed to instill good technical habits, develop flexible skill repertoires, and realize tangible improvements during the course of the camp.

In between on-water sessions, an assortment of off-water presentations and casual discussions complement the instruction. The three-day program generally allows for more detailed, personalized instruction and better opportunities to put paddling theory into practice.
