Distance Team Selection

Hello CORA Paddlers

(UPDATE 20 MAY 2020) Based on your submissions on the expression of interest, the Samoa 2021 Selection Committee has met over the past couple months to modify the Samoa selection process to accommodate the COVID-19 restrictions. The safety of Canadian paddlers is our utmost priority. This updated process permits physical distancing and provides some remote-access coaching opportunities. Pending the lift of travel and gathering conditions by October 2020 and Spring 2021, there will be a final selection camp for free agents and a subsequent race-off to determine the crews representing Canada at the 2021 World Distance Championships.

This selection process is one we feel is fair, allows access to paddlers from all regions in Canada and ensures we are following guidelines to protect our paddlers. Should local/provincial health authority requirements for physical distancing remain the same or increase, by fall/spring, further adjustments will be required to this process to meet IVF deadlines for registration. IVF has not indicated any changes in plans or timing for the August 8-15, 2021 championships at this time.

Good luck to all paddlers! Stay Safe!
