Welcome! This blog is not just for my ideas- it's for yours. That's why I started this blog- so we can all share ideas. Please comment on articles if you want to. I hope to generate some discussion on these issues. Tell me what works for you, how you train, what you have learned, etc. Your input is encouraged!

I've been involved in this sport for over 40 years. I've coached World Champions and Olympic Champions. I've even been World Champion in the team event. I've raced c-1, k-1 and c-2. I know the sport has changed over the past 40 years- I've seen it evolve. Whitewater slalom is a fantastic sport and we all love it. That's why we are here- because we love this sport.
Please be respectful in your comments, even if you disagree with someone, keep it civil. I want to encourage disagreements. People inevitably have different ideas. We all want to hear yours.
And have fun paddling! Greetings to all!
