What is Your Why?
With the new season here, it's the perfect time to think about why we paddle. Whether it's for fitness reasons, social reasons, or simply because we love the sport, everyone has their own reason for being out on the water. Whatever it may be, it's a good opportunity to attach a goal to your "why". The coaches have goals set for the team for each year, but it's also beneficial to have personal goals as well.
Space Dragons has always been a diverse team, and with that, there will always be different individual goals with our paddlers. Whether that goal is a faster time trial, cleaner technique, or even simply feeling healthier and more active at the end of the day, remember that the coaches and team are always here to support that goal. It's always easier to have your friends and family backing you up 100% when it comes to approaching these challenges, so feel free to write out your goals or share them with teammates!
Time TrialsTime trials have always been a great resource to test yourself throughout the course of the season. It's a great opportunity to see how you can move a boat on your own, as well as get some individual coaching and video feedback!
Here's the list of dates for this year's time trials! Remember that make up days aren't guaranteed so do your best to make it out to the primary dates!

Vancouver: Sun 5/27 (was 5/26)
