“This year I have been amazingly lucky to have the support of Sweetwater Coaching.
Dennis Newton is one of the top freestyle coaches in the World and has been putting
me through my paces. Dennis has put together a structured long term development plan to help me mentally and physical reach my peak in time for the 2011 Worlds.
The Difference that Dennis coaching and approach has made to my freestyle paddling in unbelievable. I am already well on my way to learning some of the harder, higher scoring freestyle moves”.

5 Star White Water Training
“I have had several courses with Dennis in the past and having not been disappointed I returned to him for the 5 star training.. I’m glad that I did. Throughout the course we had an opportunity to discuss and apply various leadership techniques, group awareness, safety, discuss lines and work on some fine tuning on boating skills. The most useful aspect was having the opportunity to lead sections of the river, then after each section give and receive constructive feedback from the instructor, plus other members of the group. This gave me some good pointers as to how I can improve communication to the group, maintain pace and generally allow the group to have a fun and safe day on the river.
The best part is the course was very enjoyable and not overly formal. It was like having a good paddle with some buddies. Just as it should be!”
