TAZ Racers 2018 – 03/21/18


Racer 2018 Expectation
Come to practice ON-TIME and give it your 100%! Head Coach Kui will be determining who will be racing and whether long or short course for each race this season. No Race Paddler has a guaranteed seat for any race. Show us you have what it takes to get a seat on the canoe. Every Race Paddler should be accountable for themselves and their team on and off the water. Doing non-practice workouts and eating right should be in your workout regimen.  The results will show on the water!
