For all those coming to Aberdeen Uni and already developing in Canoe Slalom please note the following:
Following on from last months planner and sessions see attached planner for September. This programme is aimed at the junior paddler who is aiming for promotion to division 1.
If you regular attend sessions please confirm with the appropriate coach which sessions you will be at.
If you are interested in coming for the first time you are more than welcome providing you are a competent moving water paddler and can provide or beg/borrow a slalom boat and other relevant equipment. Should numbers go behind 8 per coach we will aim to run a second session on the same night or prioritise coaching support to junior paddlers. AKC do have a limited number of club slalom boats stored on site, please contact them direct if you wish to borrow them.
I would like to thank AKC for there co-operation and work in maintaining and developing this excellent development facility.
Are there any coaches or senior paddlers out there who can volunteer to take the lead on the weekend sessions?
Any questions please call.

Training is basically Tuesdays & Thursdays at Seaton from 6:30pm through September. There is an aspiration to have sessions on a Saturday but as yet no definite details but may be in conjunction with other Regional Squads and based at Grandtully.
Remember Aberdeen has the oldest permanent slalom training course in Scotland, established by University Paddlers back in the mid 1970s. And still going strong!
