Canoe Kayak Canada – OTTAWA, ON (March 15, 2017) — Canoe Kayak Canada has struck a new volunteer committee focused on growing the whitewater discipline at the grassroots and development level.
 
“This committee is a great step for the whitewater discipline and will go a long way in strengthening our domestic development programs and building a vibrant participation base,” said James Cartwright, Canoe Kayak Canada’s Whitewater Manager. “Having strong development programs is key to getting more participants into the sport and setting athletes up to succeed in all levels of competition.”  
 
The nine-person Whitewater Domestic Development Committee will provide technical direction and oversight on programming and the whitewater national championships. The committee representatives were elected by the Whitewater Council following a call for candidates that attracted many qualified volunteers coming forward. The committee will meet on a monthly basis by conference call.
