The MRC is seeking volunteer staff to support the GB team at its international races next year.
It’s a fun but tiring few days travelling with our best athletes, helping them achieve their best possible result. You will be an integral part of the team, helping in all sorts of ways like driving, general organising, drinks changes at portages, emotional support, and safeguarding. Teams are led by an experienced manager so new staff are well supported. All expenses are paid, and team kit provided.
Please email Graham Warland if you are interested in being on the GB Team staff for any of the following events:-
German Nationals, Kassel. Travel overland and ferry, 10-15 May inclusive.
World Cup, Portugal. Travel by air with the team 24-28 May inclusive. Driving minibus and trailer 21-30 May inclusive.
European Championships, Metkovic, Croatia. Travel by air with the team 4-9 July inclusive. Driving minibus and trailer 29 June – 11 July inclusive.
World Championships, Vila Verde, Portugal. Travel by air with the team 5-10 Sept inclusive. Driving minibus and trailer 1-12 Sept inclusive.
French Nationals, near Bordeaux. Travel overland and ferry, 13-18 Sept inclusive.
All staff will need to get a portable DBS Certificate with British Canoeing (or have one already), and pass the online Paddlesafe course. Staff with driving licences, especially those that allow you to drive with a trailer, are particularly welcome! If you passed your test before 1st Jan 1997 you will probably have this right without the need for a separate test.
