Generally, the focus of fall training is skill development and aerobic conditioning. However, fall activities will be primarily on-water but will incorporate running, calisthenics and other activities appropriate to the athletes’ stage of development. Athletes should attend each session prepared for a mix of on-water and on-land activities.
The Calgary Canoe Club program follows a long-term athlete development model with practice sessions increasing each year, with age. The below table outlines the fall schedule for each age group. Age groups are in line with the 2022 competitive season.
