OTTAWA, ONTARIO (April 16, 2019) – Canoe Kayak Canada (CKC) is proud to name 15 athletes on the 2019 Senior, U23 and Junior Canoe Slalom Teams. Canadian athletes were selected at the Canoe Slalom National Team trials that took place last weekend at the Riversport Adventures Whitewater Facility in Oklahoma City, USA.

“It was great to see our Canadian athletes back in action on the water this past weekend”, said said James Cartwright, Senior Manager of Slalom High Performance Manager and Coach Development at Canoe Kayak Canada. “Our selection races were combined with the American Canoe Association (ACA) team trials which created a super competitive atmosphere, and a number of our Canadian athletes put on great performances and proved they are ready to compete on the international stage this summer.”

The 2019 Senior, U23 and Junior National Teams were selected based on the National Team selection criteria available on the Canoe Kayak Canada website. Selected athletes will have the opportunity to compete on the International Canoe Federation (ICF) circuit over the coming season including the Canoe Slalom World Cups series and the World Championships.

In addition to the international competitions, Canoe Kayak Canada will be hosting the 2019 Whitewater National Championships in Minden Hills, Ontario from August 12 to August 18. Canoe Kayak Canada’s full event calendar can be found on the website here.
