If the level of the athlete is high enough, they can go to try out for the Olympics. Since the coaches are certified, the members will be assured that they are trained proper paddling techniques, and that the training is high quality caliber. It is an ideal place to meet other athletes interested in the paddling sport.
After discussing with the Program Coordinator which program you or your child will be taking, some forms will need to be filled out.
