OTTAWA – CanoeKayak Canada has launched its new website www.canoekayak.ca. The website has been designed and developed by The Bytown Group in Ottawa.
“The new site projects an image of CanoeKayak that will surely inspire our community and the public to explore the many opportunities within our sport,” said Casey Wade, CEO of CanoeKayak Canada. “We are thrilled to launch this site and hope it leads many more people to the water.”
The site provides a fresh new look for the sport and brings the paddling disciplines of sprint, whitewater and marathon under one banner. There’s also information on other types of paddling including canoe polo, freestyle, wildwater and dragonboat. To make the sport more accessible, newcomers can learn how to get involved and can even punch in their postal code to find a nearby club.
National Team athletes and coaches are proudly showcased on the site. Staff and committees are also profiled with an organizational overview to better articulate CanoeKayak Canada’s role as a national sport organization.
There is an array of resources to support clubs, coaches, administrators and athletes along with a comprehensive section on becoming a coach or volunteering and officiating. The site has been designed to be mobile friendly with easy accessibility for smartphones and tablets which are becoming increasingly popular for viewing content online.
Feedback on the new website can be submitted through a survey.
