Canoe Kayak BC is pleased to announce the hiring of Cory Rublee as the Canoe Development Coach.
Rublee brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Canoe Kayak BC. He began his paddling career at the Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club and quickly ascended the paddling ranks. A member of the National Team for six years, Rublee represented Canada at regattas in Europe, Mexico and Central and South America. Domestically, he is a 21 time national champion and won five gold medals at the Canada Summer Games.
“I am really excited to help develop canoeing in B.C. Over my career I have had the opportunity to work with so many great coaches and I would like to transfer that knowledge to the athletes.” said Rublee. “I have always believed B.C. has the ability to be a strong force in canoeing and hopefully I can contribute to that goal.”
Beyond paddling, Rublee holds a Bachelor of Human Kinetics.
With the assistance of a government grant, Rublee will start his new position at the end of June in time for the CKBC Canoe Camp. He will be based out of Burnaby.
