The 2017 KeepitFast Coaching Week will be held in Lake Keepit from the 11 Nov to 18 Nov 2017

KeepitFast is a fun and relaxed training/coaching event with goal to improve XC performance and competition results. This is targeted to competition and serious XC pilots wishing to improve their skills in a relaxed environment. There is no need to be a Top Gun, this is open to any pilot with Silver C and above that is comfortable going cross country but it is not suitable for for XC beginners.

For XC beginners and competition initiation the the Keepit Regatta is a more suited event, this is one notch up and you will be challenged a bit more but it remains a relaxed event, this is not squad week!

We have secured the services of multiple times Australian Champions  Allan Barnes and Bruce Taylor who will act as coaches. Each participant will have the chance to fly in a dual seater or in lead & follow with a coach at least one day during the week.

The coaching week program will loosely follow the format below;

  • Talks on topics of interest from coaches and participants
  • Briefing, Task Planning
  • Daily flying tasks
  • Flying with a coach or other XC pilots.
  • Individual, Lead and follow or cooperative team flying
  • Targeted practice
  • Debrief, Traces analysis, Decision making review
  • Tales and story telling around dinner and drinks!

To maximize the benefits, the participants will be encouraged to work in teams.

To ensure everyone can fly and interact with the coaches we have limited the entries to 15 participants which will be accepted in order of registration.

Entry fee for the whole event is $260 if paid prior to 30 Sept, late entry $310 post 30 Sept. There will be no discount or partial charges for partial attendance. The fees include flying with the coaches but not glider rental and launch fees.

In the last 2 years we have added 11 cabins in Lake Keepit so before booking accommodation at the Park or outside, check with our booking manager if there are vacancies.

Looking forward to see you there
