The outrigger canoe development course is a pathway for any inexperienced paddler or recent graduate of the novice squad sessions to continue to access training and access to club boats whilst they build experience and skill in the sport.
The course is aimed at non-members who would otherwise not have access to the boats or the training that is needed for progressing further as a paddler. The ability to continue to develop paddling skill gives the novice time to get to know the Club, develop a love for the sport and to ensure that they are committed to the activities of the Rowing and Paddling Section. The eventual outcome is hopefully a successful application to become a member of RHKYC.
The course includes access to coaching over a three-month period at regular training sessions at Middle Island when available, and also includes invitations to any of the relevant Rowing and Paddle Sports Section races and events that might be held during the duration of the course.
Upon completion of this course it is hoped that the new paddler has gained enough experience of both the sport and of the Club to proceed with a membership application. Current applicants may be invited to attend ongoing coaching and training with the Club.
In addition, the course provides an avenue for experienced paddlers newly arrived to Hong Kong to take part in training and racing activities while they get to know us and make the decision to join the Club in the longer term.
