Squad (EPS) and England National Talent Squad (ENTS) Qualification Criteria and England Development Programme (EDP) Eligibility Policy published

As you are aware over the last few months we have conducted a review and public consultation of the England Talent Sprint Programme. There is a very real desire through collaborative working to further strengthen the talent environments within clubs. The long term ambition is to establish clubs as an integral and fundamental part of the talent pathway within Sprint Racing in order to help drive the depth and standard of the sport to new levels to ensure that the performances that were on show at the Junior World and European Championship earlier in the summer are repeated and built upon.

The England Talent Canoe Sprint Plan was released in June. This plan marks a significant change in direction, with a reduction of investment in regional squads more support and resource for clubs and their club coaches to develop talented junior paddlers. The England national programmes remain a key component of the England Pathway and today sees the release of the Qualification Criteria and Eligibility Policy for each of the programmes.

The Qualification Criteria and Eligibility Policy links below have been updated due to some feedback received. We have clarified a point around which discipline performances are able to register matrix scores. This clarification does not impact on the Qualification Criteria principles or application process.

We are sending a statement out to all England Talent Programme athletes, coaches and parents around the updated links in case they have downloaded the previously uploaded policy document.

  England Talent Canoe Sprint Plan Webinar

Over the last few months we have conducted a review and public consultation of the England Talent Canoe Sprint Programme. There is a very real desire to further strengthen the talent environments within clubs as an integral and fundamental part of the athlete talent pathway within Sprint Racing. The England Talent Canoe Sprint Plan has been released recently which marks a significant change in direction, with more investment and resource to support clubs and their club coaches to develop talented junior paddlers and a reduction of investment in regional squads.

This direction was established with the introduction of the Talent Club Partnership Programme launched in 2017 and this plan will serve to underpin and support the work of all English clubs within the Sprint pathway.

The England Talent Canoe Sprint Plan is subject to British Canoeing Board approval, the document on the link below sets out the strategy for the England Talent Canoe Sprint Plan through to 2025. Its delivery will of course be reliant in the continued support from the key stakeholders including Sport England and the clubs within British Canoeing.
