About Right Angle Performance
Right Angle Performance is a paddle sport service company originating in Vancouver, founded and led by Olympian and World Champion dragon boat and outrigger canoe coach and paddler, Kamini Jain.
Right Angle Performance delivers to teams, individuals and coaches technical, tactical and training education for dragon boat, outrigger canoe, surfski and kayak racing. All of these world-class paddle sport services evolved from the experience and skills Kamini gained through her 30 years commitment to top competitive paddling, with over a decade of these years dedicated to coaching as a full-time profession.
All Right Angle Performance coaches are World Champions and facilitate using our proven methodology, each with his or her own personal coaching style. We appreciate that no single technical model is the one-and-only way to move a boat. However, our detailed but easy to learn approach delivers results, establishes winning mind sets and ultimately creates champions.
Our comprehensive understanding of the elements of style and technique, how these elements evolve as an athlete develops, and how the variety of styles seen in the competitive world of paddling compare and contrast sets our coaches apart as we move paddlers and coaches, regardless of their chosen style, toward improved performance.
Kamini brings to her coaching 30 years of success as both an athlete and coach. Her approach has been developed from a 20 year full-time devotion to sprint kayaking in combination with many years of high performance outrigger canoe and dragon boat competition. Combining high-level training and full-time coaching in a variety of paddling disciplines has allowed Kamini to examine paddle sports in a way that few people have had the opportunity to do. Her experiential knowledge is supported by master’s degrees in both physiology and leadership.
Kamini sees sport as a way for people to expand their boundaries, live without limits, and gain empowerment by proving their physical strength and mental discipline. Her coaching objective is to encourage paddlers to set ambitious goals and provide them with the tools to perform their absolute best and fulfill their objectives
