You determine your commitment. In NAVMAT we have a range of paddlers from Australian Champions to beginners. We welcome every standard of fitness and social paddlers (usually 1 to 2 sessions per week) are very welcome as well.
There will be times when the coach will expect more time on the water training and this commitment request depends on what events are occurring and your availability.
For example there is a build up of training from November onwards in preparation for the Australia Championships in March.
