Gold Medal Connections <----->"pathways to excellence"


{er2}
OUR PHILOSOPHY

Our Camps and Clinics are dedicated to broadening the base of paddling enthusiasm through a fun-filled and innovative program. The instructional team brings tremendous insight and experience to the table, as well as a light hearted approach to teaching, encouraging spirited efforts from participants. What’s more, stories of their Olympic connections inspire the “gold medal” pursuits that reside in all of us.

We use our slalom backgrounds, techniques and philosophies to help practicing boaters gain confidence and improve their overall whitewater skills. We also love introducing newcomers to the joys of paddle sports, starting them out with good habits and strong foundations. Regardless of skill level, our approach begins simply by maximizing the individual attention we give each student.

While there are a number of good instructional paddling programs across the country, it's unusual to find a mobile one - one willing to take its teachings on the road, bringing the thrill of whitewater paddling into interested communities. Such is the idea behind "Gold Medal Camps".

It's exciting working with a range of individual instructional needs. Variety creates possibility! Beginners are inspired by new skills waiting to be honed, while more accomplished boaters find challenge in mastering the fundamentals.
