Sprint National Team Trials slated for Georgia and Montréal

OTTAWA – CanoeKayak Canada has scheduled two sets of Sprint National Team Trials for the 2015 season. The first set will kick off May 2 – 3 on Lake Lanier in Gainesville, Georgia, USA following warm-weather training camps in Florida. CanoeKayak Canada has hosted trials at this venue several times, most recently in 2012 and 2014. This set of trials will be used to select a team to compete at World Cups in Europe in the second half of May. Trials 1 will also be used as the first assessment for World Championships, Under 23 World Championships and selection for the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games.

A second set of trials is scheduled for June 19 – 21 at the Olympic Basin in Montreal. While selection criteria has not yet been confirmed, the second set of trials will finalize selections for the U23 World Championships Team. Junior Team selections will take place exclusively at Trials 2. Both sets of trials will impact nominations for Sport Canada Carding through the Athlete Assistance Program.

Trials dates and locations were decided at a high performance review and planning session which took place with National Team Coaches and staff last week in Halifax. While the dates have been set with venue managers, they are still considered tentative until formal hosting contracts have been officially signed.
