Central Squads

Central Squads

CR CATS paddlers in Division 2 and above are eligible to join Central Squads.

Some of our Division 3 paddlers will get the opportunity to take part in some of the development squad days at Alva as ‘invites’.

Central Squads operates above whatever the club organises and enables our better paddlers to attend training camps at Pinkston, Tully, Holme Pierrepont and Lee Valley along with paddlers from other Scottish Clubs.

It is run by Jane Gibson from Strathallan CC and welcomes paddlers from CR CATS, Breadalbane, ESKC, Aberdeen, Pinkston Panthers and Forth CC.

Doodle Polls

Please complete the doodle polls for the training days and camps you would like to attend.

These are used as a basis to organise coach resource.  Please can you keep these up to date with your plans and if you need to update your attendance because you can now attend or can no longer attend, please update the doodle poll and add a comment.

Numbers for camps will be finalised 4 weeks before any camp.  Withdrawal after this may be charged as these camps need to cover the coaching costs.

Strength Building Program – no weights

Here is a program to follow to build strength without using weights

STRENGTH NO WEIGHTS – November

 

Holme Pierrepont – Access to the GB Exclusive Slot 

GB have kindly allowed paddlers in Premier and Div 1 to access the exclusive slot at HPP (i.e. the one between 08:00 and 10:00).

 

The paddlers (or parents if paddler under 18) MUST complete this form a few days before the first time they wish to paddle on the GB exclusive slot so they can be added to the approved list by British Canoeing.

 

Part of this paperwork says – I have received a HPPWWC Site Specific Induction and am aware of the Generic Canoe Sport and HPP Slalom Course risk assessment.  The lead coach will ensure that the paddlers are aware of the risk assessment once they are at HPP.

 

All participants must manually sign in and out for the Exclusive Pre 10am slot at the Green Cabin, if any person does not complete the sign in or out sheet the NWSC will reserve the right to remove you off the water.

 

Please note any mitigating actions displayed on the board in the Green Cabin.
