Hello Club Representatives,
BOOKING FOR THE LADIES PADDLE SYMPOSIUM 2014 IS NOW OPEN!
The Ladies Paddle Symposium will take place on the 5th/6th April 2014 in North Wales.
All the same great bits as last time such as 2 days of coaching with low ratios by some of the top providers in the UK in as many different disciplines as you can shake a stick at, an evening meal together on the Saturday for everyone, plus hopefully some added evening workshops for those who want to keep learning 🙂 There will be a raffle once again to raise money for an as yet undecided charity (if you have any suggestions please make them known to me – female empowerment based would be ideal!). We are also going to have T-shirts this time as well!
Here is some of the feedback from last year’s event
There was a definite happy atmosphere – I think it was very positive to find so many women of all ages interested enough in paddling to meet to together.
My canoeing day (Saturday) left me with renewed enthusiasm for the sport I love and reassurance I can still do it! I learned a lot about my paddling style and ways to improve it.
Relaxed atmosphere, no testosterone. All the coaches I met were supportive and approachable. The accommodation was excellent … and the food was good, and in ample portion-size for what we needed to fuel us.
The low coach/paddler ratio was by far the best thing for me.
A thoroughly enjoyable weekend, with a nice vibe and cracking people.
Very supportive environment
I came to see how it was to be coached in a group of ladies and found the experience to be relaxing and empowering.
Very relaxed, fun atmosphere, everyone participating at different levels and in different boats.
Old and new coach faces will be working the event, but remember if there is anyone you can recommend that isn’t on the list then let me know!
Prices and booking forms are available on the website http://ladiespaddlesymposium.wordpress.com/ which I am updating all the time. Booking for the residential option closes on the 3rd February and booking for the Non-Residential option closes on the 3rd March.
Please make sure you join the Ladies Paddle Symposium Facebook group as that will have lots of extra information on it as well.
If you have any questions please get in contact with me at this email address or phone 07737 040 785.
Even if this isn’t for you, please let your friends and members know so we can get as many Ladies involved as possible.
It is going to be another awesome event.
Take care and see you on the water!
