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.

Our Program is already working for the future. The athletes that we recruit and develop today will be the champions of tomorrow. 

The funds that you send will also help to drive our efforts to recruit develop and field our next generation of athletes.
