Due to further government guidelines on Coronavirus, from today (Monday 23 March 2020) British Canoeing is taking a further precaution and ceasing training at our High Performance Centres.
Following the recent announcements by the government last week in relation to the developing Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and the importance of social distancing, British Canoeing is now fully operating with all staff working at home for an indefinite period.
In order to protect the health and well-being of everyone involved in our events, British Canoeing has today confirmed the cancellation of the Sprint selection event planned for 28/29 March and the Paracanoe selection event planned for the 25/26 April 2020.
The International Canoe Federation has announced all ICF and international canoeing competitions scheduled between now and the end of May will be postponed or cancelled because of ongoing concerns about the coronavirus.
British Canoeing has today confirmed the cancellation of the European Canoe Association (ECA) Slalom Championships which was scheduled to take place at Lee Valley White Water Centre in May and the International Canoe Federation (ICF) Freestyle World Cup which was due to be hosted at the National Water Sports Centre in Nottingham in July 2020.
As a part of our response to the Coronavirus, British Canoeing has taken the decision to postpone the Future Strategic Plan Regional Workshops which were due to take place throughout England over the next six weeks. We apologise for any disappointment or inconvenience that this may cause.
