CANOE KAYAK BC E-NEWSLETTER FOR VOLUNTEERS & LEADERS

Congratulations!

Congratulations to our leader Sara Hopkins on being our 2014 recipient of the Sport BC President’s Award. Having participated in our sport for many years as a national level athlete Sara has continued on in coaching, officiating and administrative capacities over many years. After having served as our Board Performance lead, she is recently completing her third year as President where she used her legal skills to assist in navigating the arrival of international coaches to our provincial ranks. She has demonstrated her leadership skills by stealthily navigating challenging and charged board issues while at the same time building cohesion within the organization. She has taken a leading role overseeing governance reviews at both the NSO and PSO levels. CKBC offers a heartfelt thanks to Sara for her many years of service and now looks forward to working with her to help establish another club in her new northern location. Sara will be presented with her award on March 12th.

Welcome to CKBC’s newest Board appointees; Stuart Chase as Athlete Representative and Joan Ko as VP Finance. Stuart is a past Canada Games athlete from Kamloops who has returned to paddling after a 10 year hiatus. He paddles for False Creek in the para K-1 category. Joan is new to our organization and currently works as a financial analyst. Great to have some new faces and perspectives.

C1 boat weight

C1 boat weight

At the ICF Congress in November 2014, a rule was passed to reduce the minimum boat weight for sprint C1’s from 16 kg to 14 kg. After consulting coaches and athletes, CanoeKayak Canada has learned that almost all National Team level C1’s are in fact already 14 kg or lighter. Over the last number of years, significant weight has been added to comply with the old 16 kg rule.

For 2015 National Team Trials, the minimum weight for C1’s shall be 14 kg to comply with the new international standard.

It should be noted that the ICF has moved to 14 kg with the intention of going to 12 kg in the near future. Athletes should take this under consideration when making purchasing decisions. The major boat manufactures are aware of the change and for the most part have been constructing C1’s in anticipation of the weight reduction.

The rule at the Canadian Sprint CanoeKayak Championships will remain at 16 kg until a rule change is made at an Annual General Meeting of the Sprint Racing Discipline. In the meantime, the Domestic Development Committee will consult with the Coaching Technical Committee to review and recommend a way forward on this issue.
