Skills Clinic with 2004 Olympic Silver Medalist

Eric and Rebecca Giddens along with Colorado Whitewater Association are offering a boating clinic to be held at the Golden Whitewater Park located on Clear Creek in Golden, Colorado.

This intermediate and advanced clinic will be held on Saturday-Sunday, April 30 – May 1, 2005. Rebecca Giddens, silver-medalist at the 2004 Olympics, is currently one of the top ranked women in the world, the 2002 World Champion, a member of the 2000 Olympic team, and a four-time National Champion. Eric Giddens was a member of the 1996 Olympic Team, 2000 and 2004 Olympic Coach and an internationally-ranked member of the U.S. National Slalom Team for many years

The clinic will be limited to 10-12 paddlers. Each student will receive personalized instruction, focusing on slalom techniques and skills that can be utilized for all river boating.

The Golden slalom site has Class I to Class III features, and the different sections will be used to demonstrate and practice a wide variety of paddling skills and techniques. A slalom boat is not required and the clinics are open to K-1 and C-1 paddlers.

This two-day clinic will include on-shore instruction (the "Class Room" session) and video recording and review. Because of the small number of students, each person receives professional and personalized instruction specific to their level of paddling.

Lunch is included for both days. Cost of the two-day clinic is to be $150 per person. A review of the day’s videotaping will follow Saturday evening along with dinner.

To sign up, please contact Dana Heins-Gelder or Tom Gelder at competition@coloradowhitewater.org or submit an application (found at www.coloradoWhitewater.org)
