Hitting the Reset Button

Online Seminar Series

For paddlers and coaches in all paddlesports

This series is presented in partnership with False Creek Racing Canoe Club.

After a challenging 2020, many aspects of our lives have been impacted. In this online seminar series, we focus on aspects important to paddlers who want to live healthy, active lives and improve their paddling performance; nutrition, mental focus and race readiness. These aspects are important to visit in order to grow and stay motivated, no matter what 2021 may bring.  Join us for three online presentations to learn some key points on how to reset your focus and to implement productive behaviours in your training and everyday life.

This online seminar series is composed of three seminars, one per week, on different topics lead by different experts.  Each will be held twice to help suit different schedules and time zones.  Almost anywhere you are in the world, one of the times will be in your waking hours.  Recordings will be available for a period of time after each seminar.
