Welcome coaches! This Level 2 program is laid out for participants to paddle twice weekly for 10 weeks in the summer with the end result being ready for festivals!
LEVEL 2 PADDLERS: This water progression is for paddlers who may participate in seasonal paddle programs to prepare for the upcoming water season. They may be new to paddling or are return paddlers and have paddling experience. As such, there is technical coaching that will prepare paddlers to do a 200M and 500M race at the end of 10 sessions.
LEVEL 2 CRITERIA: This program is formulated on the criteria that defines a level two paddler. These paddlers:
- Like to compete
- Use paddling to improve overall fitness
- Have the intention to place well in competitions
- Want to work on their paddling skills
- Are competitive within their own goals and have a focus on being competitive
LEVEL 2 PROGRESSION GOAL: This program will prepare paddlers to be able to sustain RPE18 for over 3 minutes to do a solid 500M race as well as doing sprint pieces consistent with a 200M race. This training will also prepare paddlers to do RPE19 as in starts, powers and finishes so coaches can build a race strategy.
