127 athletes registered for Alliance Traffic Group BC Cup #2 & U16+ Provincial Championships

One hundred twenty-seven athletes are set to paddle this weekend at Canoe Kayak BC’s  U16+ Provincial Championships and the Alliance Traffic Group BC Cup #2. This two-day event takes place on Shumway Lake outside of Kamloops from July 16 to 17.

U16+ Provincial Championships

In addition to paddling for provincial titles, the athletes are also looking to secure their spots to the Canadian National Championships. The top four in each race, except for the 6000m which is top five,  will qualify to Team BC for the nationals in Dartmouth, NS from August 30 to September 4.

The 2017 Canada Summer Games long list squad will also be selected following the competition. Up to 16 females (8 kayakers/8 canoers) and 16 males (8 kayakers/8 canoers) may be selected. These athletes will be identified based on their performances in singles and will be invited to attend a camp in the fall and other CKBC  events leading into the 2017 season.
