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 1.5 to 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 20th of September to the 12th of December, 2021. By registering for this Triads round you become a 'regular' NLK paddler for 12 weeks for an up-front payment of between $276 and $300. 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: 20/09/21 to 12/12/21 (total of 36 programmed sessions, 6 small group "Triads" sessions, and between 9 (PP) and 12 (NS and MT) larger group sessions over 12 weeks). Please note PP sessions on Oct 3rd, Oct 31st, Nov 21st are not available this Round.
