Prodigy Championships Camp

A week of intensive, top quality coaching aimed at developing all aspects of your freestyle kayaking in preparation for the European Championships or just to improve your freestyle in a fun environment.

The freestyle development camp will be based in Paris, France where the European Championships will take place. The training schedule will be designed to suit your individual requirements, with the aim of preparing you for the upcoming European Championships.

Our expert coaches and their instruction and advice on competition preparation will help you maximize your performance and compete at your highest level in competition.

On this trip

  • Personalised coaching – get individual coaching from some of the best on the elements of freestyle that you want to work on
  • Expert technique advice – we can break down any freestyle move or combo and provide you with key points and valuable understanding to help get that move nailed
  • Long term development – we aim not just to help you out during that week, but also to provide you with all the understanding and knowledge to continue your development towards European Championships and beyond
  • Daily video feedback – we will use progressive, positive coaching and resources including extensive daily video analysis
  • Comprehensive review – at the end of the week we will provide you with an extensive review of your paddling (we will also send you a digital copy via email) as well as a few video clips showing the key things you worked on
  • This camp also gives you the opportunity to transform your competition performance for the better. We will work on:
  • Competition preparation – we can help you prioritise your training to identify key areas for focus and help you put together a training plan that provides higher performance
  • Run construction – how to choose which move to do first? Go big or be conservative? Should you try to link moves or keep it simple? We will tackle all these questions and more to help you put together the perfect run on any feature.
  • Competition scoring – a fundamental part of winning competitions that is often overlooked is whether you are scoring what you think you are. We can help you understand how judging works, and help you build a comprehensive understanding of the latest competition rules.
  • Competition practice – we will run several practice competitions, and we will help you learn how to maximise your points. We can also explore the use of visualisation and other techniques to help you prepare your mind just before a competition.
  • Mental preparation – some days you paddle well, and some days you don’t. We will discuss ways to put yourself in the right mindset, feeling positive to make sure your big competition day is a day when you’re on fire, not washed out.
  • Training for a most important competition – if you are working towards a certain event, we can run the whole week with that competition in mind, help you put together a run and identify key areas for you to work on.
