Junior Progression Sessions

The Junior Progression Sessions were established in 2021 with the aim to systematically foster the most promising junior kite athletes in and around Perth. Initiated by Kiteboarding WA, the State Sporting Association for Kiteboarding, a structured training program was implemented, with a focus on freestyle and big air, plus the core disciplines required to develop our athletes‘ agility, technicality and mental strength.

It’s safe to say that our Groms have learned some extraordinary skills this season and here is a sneaky insight into their secret; Our latest documentary takes you on an unfiltered journey into the junior kite athlete program. Including hard-boosting training and uncensored interviews with our coaches and elite junior kiteboarders. It’s certainly worth the watch, so go check out the thrilling full-length documentary below:

Always on the Lookout for Fresh Talent

Are you an advanced kitesurfer above 8 and below 16 who is keen to compete on state, national and international levels? Then sign up to join our state’s competing top talents, when they unite with our head coach and assistant coaches to lift skill and resilience on a weekly base!

Save the date for the opening event on Saturday 16 September! To kick off the season, the first meeting will include a mandatory fit-check, goal setting, and a social barbecue in the evening.

Wind dependent, the coaching sessions take place from 12 October to 30 November 2023 on Thursdays, including additional weekend clinics and sessions at external locations. Venues include Applecross foreshore, Woodman’s Point, and the Pond in Safety Bay.

Riding with the perfect technique, trick analysis, competition preparation, and heat planning are amongst the things you can expect to learn, as well as conditioning and injury prevention.

  • It is important to note that this is a high-performance program. It is recommended for beginners and intermediate riders to sign up for training with one of our great local kiteboarding schools.
