Coach & Athlete Travel:
Our Team is now big enough to travel by Bus (O Ya, Go TEAM!) We love the time together in the bus as a great way to foster team building and a sense of WRCC unity. It also allows athletes who may not otherwise have rides to participate and makes sure we all get there on time. The Team will depart the Wascana Racing Canoe Club at 12:30PM Friday with the travel time estimated at 8 hours. Parents and the ‘cheering team’ who may be traveling to Leduc as well, If there are empty seats in the bus we are happy to have you ride along.
Coaches will determine the room assignments. 2-4 athletes will be assigned to each room. We have a block of rooms reserved at the Best Western Premier Denham Inn Hotel in Leduc, close to the race course at Telford Lake.
It is wise to pack snacks for the bus but the bus will stop on route for a team meal. Saturday, lunch provided at the race course by our own WRCC Performance Nutrition Team (Let Mike know if you want to help as part of this group). Breakfast and dinners will be at local establishments with the option to pick groceries as well. Team staff will help ensure athlete are fueling well.
