Results for Survivor Slalom #1

Thursday evening was the first Survivor Slalom of the season.  Hosted at Deerfoot Meadows in Calgary this proved to be the beginnings of a recreational slalom paddling group that is keen to use this paddling discipline as a means to improving skill.  A short clinic prior to each paddler completing two timed runs down the course enabled everyone to become familiar with the course and learn some paddling technique that will help improve river running skills.

The stage has been set for our next Survivor Slalom event in late June.  Next week will be the 3rd slalom paddling session on the Kananaskis River as a recreational slalom paddling program evolves in the Calgary and Canmore areas.

Most know slalom as being the highly competitive and technical Olympic sport.  Don’t let that turn you away.  These events are fun, safe and focus on connecting that relationship between the technical precision required of slalom and its transfer to paddling rapids on a river.
