SUP FIT TEAM
Our favorite offering! Whatever your SUP level, we have a team for you! For our 2023 Season, we will be offering our standard Beginning SUP Fit Team for those new to the sport or working on basic SUP skills. We will have a mixed team for new and returning paddlers and lastly an Advanced Endurance SUP Fit Team for those who want to get in some miles with other paddlers. Our Summer Session is 10 weeks starting around Memorial Day Weekend.
This series has been designed for any level paddler to systematically improve skills with regular practice in a group setting. Our focus is on technique, alignment, power, tracking, endurance, strength, stability, mobility and timing. You will learn A LOT and have FUN doing it!
Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is a great workout and a fun way to stay active in the summer. It is a perfect cross training sport that specifically engages the core muscle groups and is low impact.
SUP FIT Team provides a fun way to meet, encourage and become good friends with other athletes. You will meet fellow paddlers that share your passion for being active on the water!
Location: Square Lake County Park (meet at trailer) & William O’Brien (Boat Launch)
*For cooler water temps and days. we suggest neoprene booties to keep feet warm and possibly neoprene pants and jacket for body. We dress in layers and although there is always the possibility of falling in, we do not attempt skills that are likely to put us off balance during these sessions. We tend toward more endurance paddles with focus on paddle skills.
Starts May 29, 2023 and runs 10 weeks until August 6 w/ make up dates!

Covid-19 Guidelines: For added hygiene during this time, we suggest as a SUP Fit Team Member, you invest in your own PFD & Safety Whistle. If you already own a personal paddle, great! Bring that too. We will always provide disinfected items as needed so you are welcome to use ours at your own risk. Do not come to class if you or anyone in your home is running a fever or has cold/flu symptoms, are awaiting a Covid test or thinks they have been exposed. We can continue to have fun and enjoy the outdoors in a safe manner if everyone can respect each other’s safety and our guidelines. Thank you!
