Better to start them young
Some might not even know that rafting is a sport. Whitewater rafting is not only a sport but has teams all over the globe that meet every other year for the World Rafting Championships. The competitions are made up of multiple events like slalom, sprint, and down river. All these events are done on rapids from class I to class V.
Costa Rica takes their rafting quite seriously and here at the POC we have been training our junior team for years. Our goal has always been to bring a gold medal back to Costa Rica. For years Costa Rica has competed but the winners are always Japan, Brazil, or a European country.
The Junior rafting team at POC has competed in Australia, Argentina, Colombia, and New Zealand. Their skill level had gradually reached a level of a world class competitor and they are known among the top rafters in the world as the up and coming team to watch in future world championships.
We will keep you posted on the junior rafting team at POC and their success as they pass into the adult category.
