For the 4th year in a row, B’More SUP will be offering our Race Ready SUP training program this spring and summer. Our aim is to create a focused training program for you to reach your goals. It doesn’t matter what your goal is or how experienced of a paddler you are- we just ask that you come with a specific goal in mind and we will do our best to help you achieve it over the course of our training program.

* 2020 Spring Training Will Begin May 3rd*

Join B’More SUP this spring to get a head start on your paddle training! If you are considering doing a early summer SUP race, or you just want to get a head start on the SUP season, our spring training program will be perfect for you!

We will meet Sunday mornings at 9am for a 2-6 mile training paddle. Not sure you are ready for 6 miles? No worries, we will build up to this distance. The first week we will review some basic technique and go for a casual 2-3 mile paddle and then every week after we will increase our distance. Plus, this is a “no drop” paddle, meaning no one will be left behind. Everyone will be told the course for the day and then the faster paddlers will go in front and the instructor will stay in the back with the slower paddlers. We are all here to slowly build our stamina and increase our mileage, so do not feel like you are not ready for the program.

This program is for all levels of paddlers and will help build your endurance over 7 weeks.

We will continue to monitor current regulations due to COVID-19 and make adjustments to our training schedule and format as necessary. At the moment, there is a good chance that we will still need to take proper social distancing precautions in May, so we will have staggered start times for all group paddle sessions and limit the amount of people on the pier to only 3 at a time. Please stay tuned for further updates!

Who is this training program for?

We are committed to keeping this training program open to ALL levels of paddlers. We expect to have some return race team members as well as brand new racers. This program is designed to get you ready to compete in the first local race of the season- the Bay Bridge Paddle.
