England Performance and National Talent Squads

The aim of both the England Performance Squad (EPS) and the England National Talent Squad (ENTS) is to develop well rounded athletes who can progress onto the British Canoeing World Class Podium Potential Programme.

The England Performance Squad (EPS) supports a few athlete who fall just outside of the selection criteria for the The England National Talent Squad and the World Class Podium Potential Programme, but who show the potential and commitment to progress to the Podium Potential Programme and to longer term senior international success as members of the Great Britain Canoe Sprint Team.

The England National Talent Squad (ENTS) prepares athletes selected from Super Regional Talent Squads (SRS) to progress onto the World Class Podium Potential Programme. These athletes gain a strong grounding in psychology, technical understanding, flat-water skills, strength and conditioning, nutrition and performance lifestyle.
