Western Sydney Whitewater Club are proud to announce the very first Slay Squad. An initiative to introduce and support young girls in the wonderful world of Canoe Slalom. We are looking specifically for girls aged 10-14 years (however 15 year olds may be considered).
We are passionate about empowering girls to do hard things, so that the next generation of Jess Fox-Kick-Butt paddlers can emerge. To show our commitment to girls in sport we will cover all tuition fees, boat and gear loan & camp fees from now until 2024.
The goal: By summer 2024, our Slay Squad will be ready to progress their slalom skills by learning basic whitewater skills. Once paddlers have completed the program the Slay Squad will graduate into our WSWC slalom academy where individuals will continue to hone skills and confidence on the water. All while having the friendship and support of their fellow club paddlers and coaches, being part of a greater community network.
Individuals commit to the program and paddle with our Paddle Australia qualified coaches up to 3 times per week during term 3 & term 4.
Individuals partake in club organised development camps during school holidays. This could be local or statewide.
