  Sprint Talent Strategy for Consultation

British Canoeing’s vision is for the England Talent Sprint Programme to significantly contribute athletes to British Canoeing Olympic and Paralympic teams, supporting Great Britain to be the best in the world by 2028.

As demonstrated by the work currently underway through the Talent Club Partnership Programme there is the 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.

Over the next few months (April/May/June) the England Sprint Talent Programme will be exploring what support structure is needed around the clubs and how the squad structure will work in order to support this.

The draft strategy can be found HERE, we welcome and invite your feedback by 13:00pm on Friday 26th April on this proposal HERE and would like to invite any English club to attend a consultation evening hosted at the British Canoeing Offices on Saturday 27th April at the HPP regatta (meeting after the event), please confirm your attendance HERE.
