Semester 1 training courses
The club has a Qld government club development grant for training for first semester 2012. Get applications in at least a two weeks before any training trip.
During the first semester, in addition to the usual club training, professional training will include two flat water sessions, one for beginners and one for advanced kayakers, two sea kayak training weekends on the bay, one for beginners and one more advanced kayakers, as well as a white water training weekend in Northern NSW. Later in the year advanced skills, leadership and instructor training for interested kayakers will be organised.
This professional training is made possible by a $5000 Queensland Government Department of Communities grant to improve club general skills and knowledge base. This grant was obtained in 2011, but due to the floods was kindly extended to 2012.
If you are interested in this training please apply to the club by emailing "training" at the uqcanoeclub.net address. Be aware that these are club development grants aimed at helping the club build its skills base. A number of factors will affect allocation of places such as demand for the course (if there is too much demand). If you don't thing you match these criteria very well, don't let that stop you applying as this is only a rough guide for us. Please include the following in the your email.
Please apply no later than two weeks prior to the date of the trip. The earlier the better as the first trips are coming up fast.
