The nice summer has almost come to an end and this is what we have managed with the youngest athletes within the project ICY (590413). Together with eldest and experienced athletes the young ones have got the opportunity to try catching them up during the whole summer. As Limbazi canoe base is considered the best base in Latvia and the only one with a status of "National", we are glad to have athletes of the National Team holding their practices here as well. Within the August the young athletes had also an opportunity to practice in "the same waters" together with an Olympian Aleksejs Rumjancevs and a kayak quarter preparing for the World Championship which will be held during 23rd - 26th august, 2018.
The young athletes started their summer activities at the end of June with a two-week summer camp and continued by everyday sports activities in canoe. Another two-week sports camp was held at the end of July, and the summer was ended up by everyday practices in canoe till the 31st August. And starting from September 1st till May 31st, during the school year, the mew trainees shall be provided the transport service to and from sports base on definite workdays after the secondary schools' lessons, Out-of-swimming/paddling season’s time the young trainees shall be educated and taught physical exercises in a gymnastic hall, running, skiing and skating (if possible).
