Paracanoe Talent Club Partnership Programme

The Paracanoe Talent Club Partnership Programme, funded by Sports Aid’s Backing the Best scheme, will enable clubs to play a crucial role in the creation of a world-class Paracanoe talent pathway to cultivate talent and create opportunities for more athletes to become part of the World Class Programme. It will support clubs to increase the numbers of disabled participants in paddle sports by working in partnership with English performance focused clubs during the Tokyo Paralympic cycle by providing additional engagement, resources and support. 

 The Programme Objectives are:

• 200% increase in Paracanoe athletes competing within National Regattas and eligible for Performance Programme selection by 2021.
• Develop a network of three resource equipped and accessible Partnership clubs capable of developing Paracanoe athletes to a Performance Programme level.
• Create a Paralympic Coaching Pathway.
• Create an education programme for coaches working with athletes that require additional support.
• Increase disability membership numbers within British Canoeing.

British Canoeing is currently working in partnership with three clubs. They are- Wey Kayak Club, Royal Leamington Spa Canoe Club and Norwich Canoe Club.
