The Sea Kayak Georgia Skills Symposium is coming October 15-19, so load up your kayaks and head on down to Tybee Island!
Yep, it’s time to enjoy the Atlantic Ocean and it’s ocean estuary during this annual outing. This year, Sea Kayak Georgia will offer British Canoe Union (BCU) courses and specialized skills training courses developed by Sea Kayak Georgia and some of the world’s leading kayakers. Follow the BCU courses and progression or you may follow the skills development courses or a bit of both. The goal of this symposium is to deliver world class training, assessment and paddlesport opportunity for all students attending. Courses are available for all skill levels and everyone is invited.
This symposium allows paddlers to come together as a community to give and receive knowledge, to see old friends and to welcome new ones. Courses are conducted from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. daily. Special features include full day courses and time for your coach to know each student’s strengths, weaknesses and goals. It all comes together to promote a better learning opportunity with real long term success for each student.
Evening presentations are given by different coaches starting anywhere from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., depending on the day’s activities. There’ll even be an oyster roast one evening at Sea Kayak Georgia and all dinner meet-ups allow students and coaches to get to know each other in a social setting.
