PKRA News:Junior World\s Launch June 28th

Written by PKRA on . Posted in News

The 2014 Juniors Kiteboarding Freestyle World Championship is set to take place once again on the beautiful shores of Costa Brava, Spain, June 28 through July 4th. Situated on a classic strand of beach on the Mediterranean Sea, Camping La Ballena Alegre in Sant Pere Pescador will host the Junior Worlds - a unique and much-anticipated event.

The special format for this Championship is both competitive and nurturing, with competitors ranging from age 8 through 16. While the competition element will pit the young kiteboarders against one another in a battle to crown the Junior World Champions in five categories by age group and gender, the event will also include daily clinics prior to the start of competition, which will assist these young riders in understanding and pursuing their goals in the sport. Such clinics will address questions such as, how to best acquire sponsorship in the industry and how to become a professional kiteboarder.  Daily sessions are geared to nurture the young athletes in the development of their abilities, skills and strategies within the competitive kiteboarding realm.   

Riders will also gain invaluable insight during this week, learning from PKRA judges, pro-riders, and industry veterans on the ins and outs of making kiteboarding a cornerstone of their athletic career.  Judging, coaching, training, nutrition, and leveraging media exposure are all topics that competitors will become intimate with throughout the week.

The world title categories awarded:

• Boys 8-11 years of age          Born between January 1, 2003 and December 31, 2006

• Boys 12-14 years of age        Born between January 1, 2000 and December 31, 2002

• Boys 15-16 years of age        Born between January 1, 1998 and December 31, 1999

• Girls 8-13 years of age          Born between January 1, 2001 and December 31, 2006

• Girls 14-16 years of age        Born between January 1, 1998 and December 31, 2000

In what is sure to be a memorable week for the riders, families, and friends, all are invited to support their favorite competitors, relax on the beach, or take advantage of demoing some of the latest 2014 gear on-hand from industry reps. The beach venue is within walking distance of the accommodations, making it an ideal setting for families of competitors. Registration for this event is open and can be directly made at the Ballena Alegre website here:
