Canoeing is an exciting sport and for those competitively minded, canoeing really comes into its own. For those who enjoy the thrill of competing there is the chance to take part in many competitions, starting in your local area and progressing all the way up to representing your country and even going to the Olympic or Paralympic Games. Whether it’s the head to head racing of Canoe Sprint that appeals to you or challenging yourself on the technical courses that Canoe Slalom offers, there’s something for all paddlers to enjoy.
CANI run specific Performance Programmes within Canoe Slalom, Canoe Sprint and Surf Kayak and Waveski. These programmes cater for those athletes who have progressed through the CANI Club Talent ID Process, CANI Talent ID Academies or Junior Blader Programmes and wish to commit to entering the CANI Performance Athlete Pathway.
In 2018, CANI launch it’s first year of Sprint Futures; a Talent ID program aimed at finding the future Olympic Hopefuls in Canoe/Kayak Sprint.
