OTTAWA – Kenna Robins will be moving on from her coaching role at CanoeKayak Canada to pursue an opportunity with the Canadian Olympic Committee. Kenna is currently the lead of CKC’s Junior and Under 23 program and the NextGen Quebec Coach.
Kenna started as a National Development Team Coach in 2005 and her role evolved into the Assistant Coach of the women’s team. She has worked with athletes at all levels and even went to the 2008 Olympic Games in a coaching capacity.
“Kenna is a coach who embodies everything this sport is about,” said Scott Logan, CanoeKayak Canada’s High Performance Director. “She’s worked tremendously hard and risen through the ranks to have a strong impact on our team. We’re going to miss her and I know she will continue to make a difference in Canadian sport through her new role.”
Kenna will continue with CanoeKayak Canada until the end of December before starting her new role as the Coordinator of Team Services with the Canadian Olympic Committee. With her life and family rooted so deeply in paddling, she says this new direction is far from the end of her involvement with CanoeKayak.
“This sport is in my blood and in my heart,” said Kenna. “I’ve absolutely loved working with everyone in the CanoeKayak family and in one capacity or another I know I’ve still got many regatta days ahead. Thank you to everyone who has made my coach career the phenomenal experience it has been.”
We hope you will join us in thanking Kenna for her many years of commitment to CKC and wishing her well in her new job.
