Rule Change Process

The evolution and improvement of CKC Sprint is in part shaped by the review of the rules which govern the discipline every two years. Section VII of the Sprint Racing Discipline Rule Book outlines the procedure for changes to these rules and regulations.

To get a full understanding of this process, please consult this section (VII) of the rule book which can be found here: https://2bcxm39bhr73x5pn814vosb1-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/2018-20-EN-Rulebook_Final.pdf 

The Sprint Meeting of Members scheduled for Saturday November 27th, 2021 ONLINE will be the meeting at which motions to repeal, amendment or make additions to the Competition Rules will be considered. 

To conform with the regulations governing this process, notice in writing from a Club or Division looking to put forward a rule change must be delivered to Casey Wade CEO (c/o Kenna Robins (krobins@canoekayak.ca) – CKC, by September 27th, 2021. This notice should include what section and rule is being addressed, the motion itself and the rationale for the change or addition. 

Along with new proposed rule changes, one item was deferred in 2018 for further consideration. 

The deferred item is: Initiate a call for input and feedback on a new name for “Junior”. 

A review of all the proposed motions by the Sprint Coaches Technical Committee will be made following this period of consultation by committee members, and recommendations made on each proposal to the DDC. CKC will circulate all proposed rule changes and recommendations before October 28th, 2021 to give all parties time to prepare for the Meeting of Members.

If you have any questions, please contact Kenna Robins (krobins@canoekayak.ca).
