Keeners 2016

After all the excitement of the Montreal Eau Vive it was time to head back to the Wilderness for one last week of coaching this time with the Keeners. 20 + excited super talented young kayakers. Alongside Steve O, Anna, Clay and Mathieu we put the kids through their paces. Testing their play boating creek boating, racing and rescue skills. I was lucky to get some days working with a small group and had the chance to do some awesome specialised kayak coaching.

Passing on some tips

Challenging the kids with some fun skill based games

Keeners is an amazing opportunity not only for the kids but also for the coaches. Teaching top end kayaking to such talented young paddlers on such a friendly river is really unique. thats what draws such an amazing crew to teach on the programme year after year.

Believe it or not this was the plan
