USA Canoe/Kayak currently faces several critical challenges that we must overcome:
- Our competitors come from organizations with huge bases of participants with sophisticated talent identification programs and clear pathways into funded club programs.
- Our competitors are well supported by their Governments and Olympic Committees.
- Our competitors have easy access to many centralized training centers and paddle sport-specific venues.
The funds that you send will also help to drive our efforts to recruit develop and field our next generation of athletes.
