NRC Slalom Mini-Camp
NRC Slalom Mini-Camps are an intensive weekend clinic for paddlers aged 18 and under. Participants build key river-running skills such as balance, stroke technique and wave surfing as well as slalom specific technique and concepts. The focus on slalom skills pushes participants towards precision, thoughtfulness, and problem-solving on the water. Hosted in conjunction with a race or a time-trial, this camp serves as an excellent introduction to whitewater slalom or as a regular training tool for more experienced competitors.
