World Games Availability

We are excited that GB have secured a MK1 and WK1 place at the World Games in Birmingham USA on the 11/12th July 2022.

Due to the scale of the event, the organisers are requesting our athlete and staff long list imminently, and we can then reduce this to the short list of final selected athletes closer to the event.

This change in times has driven a change to the 2022 Selection Policy with regards to the availability and selection dates for this event, and the policy has now been updated to reflect this.  Please note the changes highlighted in yellow in sections: 3.1.e and 3.3.c.  The updated Selection Policy is here.

The overview is as follows:

  • Availability forms must be completed by COP 11th March:
  • Selections will be made WC 3rd May at the same time as the World Cup selections, following the K1 assessment and the Short Course National Championships in April.
  • Travel is likely to be 7th – 13th July.
  • If you wish to be taken into consideration for this event, you need to fill in an availability form by COP 11th March.  Please fill this in even if you may be likely to retract your availability prior to the selection date.  It is better to be on the long list than to miss out.  There will be NO possibility to accept late availability. No form, no selection!

Please fill your form in now: Availability Form

Support Staff Wanted for International Races

The MRC is seeking volunteer staff to support the GB team at its international races this year.

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.
