Wyrda's pool session in the local press

Woerdense Courant, 20 maart 2008

Kayakclub Wyrda started this year with activities for youngsters. In seakayak-practice I spent most of the coaching time working with adults. Pool sessions with kids are new for me - a great pleasure to do. Kids ask for a different approach for a stimulating, inspirational and fun event - I learned kids are no "mini-adults" and should be treated in a respectful way that matches their psychological and physical level. On the other hand: realize that adults are "maxi-kids"- much of the the playful, fun and a bit competition-orientated elements of the kids- approach works very good with adults too...
