NRC Slalom Mini-Camps provide targeted whitewater instruction by experienced athlete-coaches over the course of an intensive, two-day clinic. Participants are encouraged to challenge themselves to develop and use new skills in a fun, supportive environment.
Skills: Participants build key river-running skills such as balance, stroke technique, surfing, choosing a line. Slalom: Slalom gates and technique are used both as a learning tool for building precision whitewater skills and as a fun, competitive aspect of kayaking.
