We are out on the river 3 days a week plus Saturdays morning (Youth Only). You are not expected to come to every practice, but what you can. We are trying to make it easy for everyone – but you need to attend at least three practices before the June 3rd Race.
Head Coach Robin Parker’s thoughts: I am so so excited about the youth team. I can’t express in words how excited I am. I love it for the youth because; athletic experience does not matter. You don’t need to catch the grounder or high pop, you don’t need to make the basket or get the ball in the goal. No weight requirements and no cuts on this team. Everyone gets to paddle. I know it will help with confidence and self esteem. For the quiet shy youth they will become more outgoing. We have to work as a team. No real stars on the team because everyone is a star. I believe 100% in all of this.
