Canoe Kayak Canada Congratulates Natalie Brett on New Paralympic Position
Canoe Kayak Canada – OTTAWA, ONTARIO (August 1, 2017) – Canoe Kayak Canada (CKC) today congratulated Sprint National Team Manager, Natalie Brett, who will be moving on from CKC next month following the Sprint National Championships. She will take on the position of Manager of Games Operations and Delivery with the Canadian Paralympic Committee (CPC).
“We’re really disappointed to see Natalie go because she’s been an invaluable member of our team,” said Graham Barton, CKC’s Chief Technical Officer. “I’ve relied on her heavily and she’s always delivered, often going the extra mile to make sure that nothing fell through the cracks. We also recognize that this is a tremendous opportunity for her to move into a management position with a first-class sport organization. We wish Natalie every success with the CPC.”
Over the last three years, Brett has developed programming, provided logistical support and delivered a wide range of services for athletes, coaches and volunteers involved in CKC’s national sprint teams.
“I’ve had a wonderful experience with Canoe Kayak Canada,” said Brett. “I’ll miss the sport and all the tremendous people I’ve met here. I feel like I’m ready for a new challenge with a multi-sport organization and I can’t think of a better place to be than the Canadian Paralympic Committee.”
Brett has had a busy summer and is just back from last week’s ICF Junior and U23 Sprint World Championships in Romania. Her last CKC event will be the Sprint National Championships from August 22 – 26 in Welland, Ontario.
