The MRC has conducted a review of its international strategy and selection policy, and made some changes with the aims of:-
- making the selection processes and athlete “pathways” clearer; and
- increasing the opportunities for top senior athletes to progress by competing abroad.
This document summarises the policy and changes for 2019. It is not the Selection Policy, and must be considered as GUIDANCE ONLY. The full policy is published on the MRC website here: MRC Selection Policy 2019 final, and details the full process, team composition, selection criteria, eligibility and appeals process.
At its May meeting, the MRC discussed the issue of paddlers not wearing club vests at the Elmbridge Assessment Race, following the rule change at the start of the season that made this compulsory.
Following feedback from athletes, we recognised that the rule change had not been communicated clearly enough to justify a disqualification for those not complying at that event. As a result the results have now been re-published to show all finish times as well as placings. The full results of the Elmbridge Assessment were also taken into account at the selection meetings to decide teams for the German National Championships and World Cup.
Following assessment races at Thameside 2 and Elmbridge, the MRC Selection Committee has chosen the following development team to race at the German National Championships in Kessel, on 12-13 May.
Athletes will race in both singles and doubles race according to their age group.

The Sprint and Marathon International Panels would like to clarify the following points regarding the selection process for the 2017 ICF Canoe Sprint Senior World Championships, 2017 ECA Canoe Sprint Senior European Championships and the 2017 ICF World Canoe Marathon Championships.
- Nominations for selection for the 5K events at the 2017 ICF Canoe Sprint Senior World Championships and the ECA Canoe Sprint European Championships will be primarily based on results of the 5K events at the 2017 June National Regatta.
- Nominations for selection for all other ICF Canoe Sprint Senior World Championships and ECA Canoe Sprint European Championships events will be primarily based on results at the 2017 July National Regatta.
- To be eligible for selection for the ICF World Canoe Marathon Championships, it is NOT a requirement that athletes compete at the ECA European Canoe Marathon Championships. This applies to the Junior, U23 and Senior categories.
