Training Program: April 5- June 27
Description

I am writing programs in 12 week blocks, with the first block starting on April 5.  The program will have 4 workouts/week with advice on which ones to skip if you can’t get them all done — which is normal not to have time to do 4 every week.

The first block is April 5- June 27.  It will focus on general preparation, basically being good at sprints and distance.  The next block (through July, August and September) will have athletes choosing between sprint preparation and distance preparation.  In this second block, the aim will be to maintain and become better at the non-chosen element but to really focus in on being able to race the chosen discipline as well as possible. For sprint athletes, the second block will focus on preparation for the Canadian trials for World Outrigger Sprints, if they fall within, or shortly after, the time period. Preparation for Canadian Dragon Boat Nationals can also be addressed.

The price is $99/12 week block.  This includes guidelines and advice on how to maximize the effectiveness of each kind of workout.

The program is not personalized but it can be made so through email, phone or virtual platform consultations, and consultations with an athlete’s other training provider(s) for $40/hour.

Training program participants receive a 10% discount on remote technical coaching.   For more information on this service please click here. 

Please email Kamini if you have any questions

Please note: registrations after noon on Thursday, April 1, may not receive their program until Tuesday, April 6 due to Easter.

Keeping the Passion: A BCS Seminar Series
Description

Keeping the Passion

A BCS paddlers’ seminar series

An examination of post-treatment physicality and moving forward as paddlers during our pandemic hiatus from paddling

I’ve had the privilege of being the coaching advisor to Vancouver’s Abreast in a Boat for many years and have enjoyed their high energy and strong camaraderie; banding together to build athleticism, strength and mobility after treatment.

This series strives to give resources and a sense of community to BCS paddlers and their coaches; those who are now losing a second season to COVID-19 and our Oceanic friends who can paddle now and wish for some more off-water tools.  Two of the seminars will provide on-land training suggestions to help paddlers gain paddling readiness and to feel like they are still, indeed, paddlers.  The third seminar, will provide specific stretching and strengthening exercises as well as valuable breast massage techniques we can do for ourselves to encourage tissue healing, increase lymphatic drainage, decrease scar tissue adhesions and address shoulder injuries, while promoting postural awareness.
