Introduction to Slalom Technique Workshops with Zoe Lau

This Paddle Week 2024 we are holding a series of 3 introduction to slalom technique workshops.

The workshops have been designed to build upon your skills at increasingly more challenging rivers.

Workshop 1: 13th January at the Forth River, TAS canoe club venue (1.5hrs). 1pm – 2:30pm

Workshop 2: 16th January at the Mersey white water slalom course (1.5hrs). 1pm – 2:30pm

Workshop 3: 17th January at Brady’s Lake slalom course (1.5hrs). 1pm – 2:30pm

Coach: Zoe Lau (Tasmanian State Performance Slalom Coach)

Course Overview:  Come and learn how to negotiate slalom gates with the State Slalom Coach! This is a great opportunity not only to learn a different kayaking discipline but to enhance your stroke technique and whitewater reading skills in the process. The sessions will run for an hour and a half and will be catered to your ability, however being quite comfortable on grade 2/3 water is highly recommended and having a live roll is a must (especially at Mersey and Bradys). Build your knowledge and skills of the slalom discipline across three workshops (working progressively across Forth, Mersey and Bradys) during Paddle Week or just pick one!

Cost: $50 per session
