Today the England Canoe Slalom Talent Programme is pleased to announce the launch of its Slalom School Programme.
The England Talent Slalom School Programme is an inclusive training and development opportunity for athletes and club coaches based at moving and white water venues.
The Slalom School programme aims to develop the technical skills, confidence and fundamental habits in paddlers to support their long term progression and enjoyment of the sport. For coaches, the programme aims to advance their technical knowledge and coaching practices, with the potential of events counting towards their achievement of Continual Professional Development (CPD) points.
This is a new and exciting development within the England Talent programme and a key component of the new England Canoe Slalom Talent Programme 2021-2025 Strategy launched in March (full news story here).
Through this programme we will increase the opportunities for formal and informal coach development. We will broaden and improve the quality of support available to a greater number of paddlers and help create a more collaborative approach to Talent development within England throughout the pathway from club to podium.
