Announcement: New Head Coach!
Alberta Slalom, after assessing and interviewing potential
applicants, is pleased to announce the appointment of Liam Smedley to the
position of High Performance Head Coach. Liam has experienced the full
spectrum of paddling, from canoeing and river running through high performance
C1 racing. Throughout his athletic career he has provided coaching support on
an occasional basis for the Ottawa River Runners and Whitewater Ontario for
age groups 10-18. This included planning and facilitating whitewater slalom
training sessions outdoors and in pool settings, entry level slalom instruction, as
well as recreational whitewater kayaking instruction. He has supported and
instructed at whitewater kayak summer camps, which included supporting river trip leaders and accommodating groups with diverse skill levels.
Along with Liam’s personal C1 National and International achievements, he has
also competed in freestyle and creek racing. He has experience in annual
training plans, physical strength programming and sport specific technical
training for Canoe Slalom. He brings a positive attitude, creative problem solving
and a goal to foster a training environment of support, teamwork and empathy to all paddlers who want to improve their skills. He understands the challenges of high performance training and educational goals and the strategies for time management and planning to achieve both.
Liam’s education includes a Bachelor of Engineering in Architectural Conservation & Sustainability
with Certifications in Gender Equity Training, Safe Sport Training and
Activity Leaders Program. He currently is the secretary on the Board of Directors
