Coaching Videos

Tom Hodge Media offers educational coaching videos for individual classes, these will be available to all on our website. The first class will be the 29-ers and Tom is planning approx. 10 videos covering various manoeuvres, strategies and coaching tips. The plan is that each series of videos will be pertinent for your own boat and will display clearly the best way to perform! Dependant on feedback, we will slowly work our way through the various Classes. If you are interested in assisting with the funding of this for your child’s class of boat, please come and see me afterwards. This will make this a beneficial learning tool for you all. We are excited with this new initiative which will offer you the opportunity to accelerate your development in your own time by providing you all with clear visuals and explanation of how to do things better in your own type of boat.
