The team are looking to build on the success they achieved in Rio 2016 where they led the medal table, with five medals in six events.
Whether you are already a paddler and want to take your racing to the next level, or perhaps you know someone who might have the potential to make a great paddler, then British Canoeing wants to hear from you.
We're looking for people who:
- have some previous sporting experience, although this doesn't need to include paddlesports
- dedicated to being the best they can be with commitment to train on an international programme
- have a British passport
- aged under 40-years-old
- Have a physical impairment or disability which fits with the International Canoe Federation's classification
In December 2016, UK Sport announced that British Canoeing's Paralympic Programme would receive a significant budget to develop and expand their programme in the lead up to Tokyo 2020.
There has never been a more exciting time to join the paracanoe programme. If you want to get involved, please contact Steve Train on firstname.lastname@example.org
