Team_usaCoaches for USDBF Team USA.
The USDBF has worked hard for several years revising and developing its Team USA Coach Selection process. With the help of many coaches and paddlers from across our nation, we have created a Team USA Coach Selection Committee and application process that we used for the first time in our selection of coaches for Team USA that will compete in the IDBF World Championships. We are excited by the process and look forward to an ever growing national team.

All coaches are working together to create a strong, cohesive national team. They are busily preparing for time trials throughout the country. 

If you are interested in trying out for Team USA, please don't hesitate to contact me and we will connect you with the Team USA coach nearest you.
