Pathway Update May 2014

Pathway Programme Update
The SA pathway program has begun to take shape with the establishment of two training groups from the existing group training out of Westlakes Canoe Club.  The Canoe SA Pathway Training group made up predominantly of paddlers entering U18 for next season is currently preparing 9 paddlers to tour to Slovakia as a part of the Australian team to compete in Olympic Hopes Regatta in September.
I have been touring around and begun talking to clubs and disciplines to find out what they are currently involved in and to discuss opportunities into the future. With developing relationships with surf clubs on the agenda there are plenty of things in the offer for proactive clubs! There will be a second Next Wave Surf Ski clinic run this weekend sponsored my SLSA and hosted at Christies Beach on Saturday. 
Plans for the National Development Pathway are being outlined, on a more local front I am looking into how the talent search program is currently being done with a view to implementing the development program into clubs that are willing to take it on.
