CanoeKayak Canada names Sprint National Teams

Posted By:

OTTAWA – CanoeKayak Canada is pleased to name its sprint National Teams for the 2014-2015 season. Selections are based on results of the 2014 competition season as set out in CKC’s selection criteria.

“These athletes have worked hard throughout the entire season to earn their positions and I to congratulate everyone selected as well as those who have supported their efforts to get there,” said Scott Logan, CanoeKayak Canada’s High Performance Director. “We have a strong National Team and a promising contingent on our Development Teams. Our senior athletes are focused on Olympic qualification in 2015 and our developing athletes know that with continued hard work, they can become our next generation of Olympians.”

Carded National Team

Up to 45 National Team athletes receive carding support through Sport Canada’s Athlete Assistance Program. The full National Team roster is subject to change over the course of the year based on performance evaluations and specific team selections. Athletes may be named to race for Canada regardless of carding status.

National Development Teams

CanoeKayak Canada has named a Senior Development Team and a Junior Development Team. These athletes have been identified for development opportunities such as training camps.
