The U18 and High Performance Programs are for experienced canoers and kayakers who are committed to attaining their training and racing goals. The program is tailored to meet individual athlete needs, and therefore does not always follow a standard schedule. The U18 Schedule changes weekly depending on the load of the training cycle, the competition schedule, and the coaching assessment of athlete needs. Each week the schedule is communicated via email from the Head Coach of the athletes.
