NLK Triads group training system


Triads is our new group training system, compatible with the Covid era. The system was designed during Tasmania's "stay at home" restrictions in April 2020 and has proven to be very popular ever since. It has supported and connected new paddlers, accelerated the development of intermediate paddlers, and given advanced paddlers a new challenge and focus. Over recent months we've seen progression rates really pick up across the board, with new habits formed and old habits finally broken. Paddlers are thriving under the new structure, with an increased level of flexibility making it easier to improve and keep each other motivated "all year round".

Triads is a combination of:

▪️ training plans for solo and buddy sessions, giving you the flexibility to paddle when and where you want (choose between beginner/intermediate and intermediate/advanced plans at a frequency of 6 sessions per fortnight)

▪️ regular 1-on-1 or small group “check in” sessions with your Triads coach (frequency of 1 per fortnight)

▪️ larger group sessions with NLK coaches (choose between Sunday Paddle Progress, Friday Next Step or Wednesday Moving Targets at a frequency of 2 per fortnight)

▪️ training notes and resources allowing you to monitor your adaption and design additional sessions if required

Our next Round of Triads will take place from the 10th of July to the 7th October, 2022. This Round will finish up a day before the Freycinet Challenge, and will focus on preparing paddlers for this event, as well as other open water events during springtime. Paddlers attending one of our Getaways in November or December would also benefit from this Round. By registering for this Triads round you become a 'regular' NLK paddler for 13 weeks for an up-front payment of $325. Equipment hire is available for all sessions and is an additional and ongoing cost involved in Triads participation, should you require it. You can pay for your gear hire prior to each session.

Please contact us or check our Team NLK Facebook page if you need any more information prior to registration.

NEXT ROUND OF TRIADS: Group sessions run from 10/07/22 to 07/10/22 (total of 39 programmed sessions, 7 small group "Triads" sessions, and 13 larger group sessions over 13 weeks). Small group sessions can commence earlier than the official start of the round to suit your schedule.
