Jared Meehan from the Waiariki Academy of Sport has managed to secure funding for next years kayak squad so now all coaching fees on both tiers of scholarships are FREE!!! Thats up to and possibly over 10 grand of tuition for free. For school leavers this means they can now get free tuition fees for their first year of study at Waiariki Institute of Technology and also get some sweet coaching in freestyle, extreme racing, and slalom. Visit http://www.waos.ac.nz/ for more information on the academy of sport. Im in the kayak squad this year and it is pretty awesome, lots of paddling and coaching from nz's best kayakers, all with the Kaituna as my playground hahaha, its sick!.
