The England Canoe Sprint Talent Programme are pleased to announce details of their forthcoming England Development Programme (EDP) training event.
8th and 9th February 2020 at Reading Canoe Club, The Warren, Reading RG4 7TH
Please note that no accommodation will be provided for athletes or coaches at this event.
Each camp’s provision will be themed around the 4-phase race model (see below) and sessions will be structured as stage and age appropriate for U14-U16 athletes for the relevant point in the season.
1 – Start technique
2 – Transition into Race Pace
3 – Race Pace
4 – Race Pace endurance
Camp provision will be structured to ensure that learning and development occurs between events. As such, it is highly encouraged that athletes should attend these events with their club coach as this will support the intended learning outcomes of these weekends and each EDP core event will include coach development opportunities. The Talent Coach Developer will be present at this training weekend to provide support to club coaches.
This weekend will be building on the FIRST WEEKEND with an emphasis on the 3rd phase of the Race Profile model, with a focus on maximising Distance Per Stroke.
The EDP is a new addition to the pathway for 2019/20, the intent with this programme is to help identify and support emerging club-based athletes who are primarily under 16 and who may be challenging for the GB Junior team in the next 2-3 years, as well as supporting these athletes’ coaches within the clubs. The full Eligibility Policy is available HERE.
How to sign up
Athletes and coaches are invited to register for the February Development weekend using the link HERE before 5th February 2020.
The National Crew Boat Process for 2020 has just been published. The aim of this process is to help identify and build the fastest crew boats possible from athletes across the Home Nations (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) in order for them to participate and compete in the 2020 Junior GB Team selection process.
This is a British process developed by the British Canoeing Sprint Home Nation Group which is separate from the International Panel and the 2020 Canoe Sprint Junior & U23 selection policy.
This Crew Boat process does not in any way determine or impact upon GB team selection, which remains an open process that any athlete or crew can enter (regardless of their participation or progression through this Crew Boat process).
The International Panel is responsible for all aspects of developing, approving and managing the implementation of the GB team selection policy, which is wholly separate from this Crew Boat process and in turn not the responsibility of the British Canoeing Canoe Sprint Home Nation Group.
