CanoeKayak Canada Designates Four National Team Training Centres

Thursday, May 29, 2014

CanoeKayak Canada is pleased to officially designate four sprint National Team Training Centres:

- Atlantic
- Montreal
- Quebec City (Lac Beauport)
- Toronto (Burloak)

High Performance Director, Scott Logan, says the centres are being defined in an effort to strengthen CanoeKayak Canada’s high performance system.

“This is a critical step to refining our system to be the best in the World,” said Logan. “With our fastest athletes training together and being supported by National Team coaches and support staff, we are strengthening the pathway from learning to paddle at a canoe club to achieving international success.”

CKC is working in partnership with Own the Podium, the Canadian Olympic Committee, Sport Canada and the Canadian Sport Centres to implement the programs and services necessary to enable athletes with the highest potential to succeed at the World Championships and Olympic Games. National Team Training Centres are designed to bring training groups, National Team coaches and technical experts together along with adequate training infrastructure to ensure the highest quality daily training environment. Centres will be closely integrated with the club system to allow for the immersion of those developing athletes and their coaches, targeting Tokyo in 2020.
