Practice Changes for week of June 20 – 27, 2016

BOO – Some updates on practices for this week.

  1. Practice is Wednesday morning at 5:45 am sharp.  No practice Wednesday night due to Pickin and Paddlin.  You need to be able to stay in the boat until 7:00 am at a minimum.  If you can not, it is disruptive to the training to stop to drop folks off.  First come first serve. If you are late and no seats, you won’t be able to have a seat that morning.  If you are unable to make this practice, cross training on a kayak or SUP is great.  Followed by swimming as the next best alternative. 
  2. This weekend is the Subaru Gorge Games on the river.  There are SUP races starting at 10 am.  There will be folks on the water dropping buoys etc.   Therefore we will not be training on Saturday morning.  We are rescheduling our weekend training session to Sunday morning at 8:00 am.

BOO – Off-Season Training

As Bend is buried in the first real snow of the year and our club Va’as are blanketed in the white stuff, early spring season paddles seem a long way off.  But before long we will be knocking out those 3-5 loop practices. Some team members are already in training.

Before our coaches have us doing 4-6 change segments with our eyes closed, here is a treat you will watch more than once. The first time through the visuals will capture your interest so much that you won’t be able to read the words quickly enough. That’s okay. Watch it for the visuals, then watch it for the words. The insights are what we all strive for every time we connect with our paddle and practice what we love to do.
