Competition preparation, Technical Freestyle Coaching

For everybody who wants to bring their freestyle game up!

A week of intensive, top quality coaching aimed at developing all aspects of your freestyle kayaking. The freestyle development camp will be based at Holme Pierrepont at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham.

The coaching will be with Bartosz Czauderna in partnership with guest coaches. It will be designed to suit your individual requirements, with the aim of transforming all aspects of your freestyle kayaking.

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
  • 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.

Who is this trip for?

The package is ideal for anyone who wants to prepare for a competition or bring their freestyle game to a maximum level and has a solid white water roll and a willingness to learn!

The freestyle development camps are during the summer holidays and provide a perfect opportunity to get some decent paddling in whilst other unfortunate souls are at work!

Do you cater for youth paddlers too?

The camp is suitable for both youth and adult paddlers. During the camp if our coaches are going to look after young paddlers, participants and their legal supervisors must agree to rules of camp.

Feel free to drop us an email if you have any concerns or questions about this or to discuss it further info@loveitliveit.co.uk.

Food and accommodation

Camping is available at the National Water Sports Centre Campsite in Nottingham which is ten minutes walk from Holme Pierrepont Whitewater Course, an ideal venue for freestyle and coaching. There are all the necessary facilities in the campsite: toilets, showers, washing facilities etc. The campsite in the summer time normally has a number of kayakers staying there, and that is where we will be based. At the end of each day’s paddling we will also review the paddling and footage at the campsite. Most people end up eating and staying at the campsite but if after reviewing the paddling you prefer to eat / sleep elsewhere then that is fine.

Outside of paddling

No responsibility can be taken for participants outside the designated coaching time. If participants are staying on site then they must be responsible for their own welfare and conduct. Feel free to drop us an email if you have any concerns or questions about this or to discuss it further info@loveitliveit.co.uk.
