Profiling

Athlete profiling is an essential process in helping to identify areas for refinement in an individual's own paddling and physical development. It helps us plan and support the development of the next generation of world-class paddlers.

The athlete profiling days take place twice a year, in Spring and Winter, and present both a challenging and exciting opportunity for athletes to progress in the British Canoeing Talent Pathway. Profiling days are filled with tests and assessments that help athletes recognise their strengths and also to identify areas for potential growth and development.

On-water profiling is open to all athletes, girls and boys C standard or above and consists of a 75m and a 250m sprint and a 2km long distance paddle.

Off-water profiling is open to the Olympic Development Programme (ODP), the English National Talent Squad (ENTS) and Super Regional Squad (SRS) athletes.
