Canoe Kayak Canada – They say you shouldn’t wish for tomorrow when you could be enjoying today. That’s easier said than done with 2017 Sprint Canoe Kayak National Championships drawing nearer and nearer.
 
This year’s National Championships, hosted by the Western Ontario Division of Canoe Kayak Canada at the Welland International Flatwater Centre, will bring together approximately 1800 athletes and thousands of spectators. The annual highlight of the summer racing schedule will provide edge-of-your-seat action from August 22nd-26th as the very best that Canada has to offer battle it out on the water.
 
Following the National Championship competition, the action continues with CanMas2017 on Sunday, August 27th where the best paddlers aged 34 and up will test themselves against each other. The event alone will see about 600 athletes hit the water and give everything that they have.
 
In a first for the National Championships, all of the action will be broadcasted live at www.canoewelland2017.com. Additionally, portions will be streamed live at cbc.ca/sports. Therefore, if you’re unable to catch the action live, you won’t miss a second.
 
This year’s venue is used to the national attention. The Welland International Flatwater Centre last hosted Canoe-Kayak Canada’s National Championships in 2011 and has since seen the 2013 Junior/U23 World Canoe Kayak Championship and the 2015 Pan American Games contested on its waters.
 
Following some major renovations since the last time it’s hosted the Nationals, the Welland International Flatwater Centre features seated grandstands at the finish line as well as open water-side lawn space for athletes, families and fans alike to set up for the week.
 
The racing will only be one component of this week-long celebration in Welland. Displays outlining the history of sprint paddling from the Canadian Canoe Museum, multiple local food and clothing vendors, and a “Give It a s Try” opportunity for youth and adults who have never paddled to come out and experience the sport first hand are some of the other highlights of this family oriented event. Furthermore, the Commodore’s Reception, Junior Dance, Senior Dance and CanMas Dinner will make Canoe Welland 2017 an unforgettable week of fun.
 
Whether you’re an athlete preparing to hit the course, an excited fan or a supportive parent, be sure to use #canoewelland2017 leading up to and during the event on all social media platforms.
