GB Team Selection Details

GB Team Selection Details

Selection policies and relevant papers are currently being reviewed. As soon as they are finalised they will be published and registration opened for the senior events for 2020. Registration will close on December 1st to allow adequate time for checking of all papers and details.

It is intended to hold two senior selection races this season, weather and water permitting. The selection points model will be used across both races and paddlers selected with the most points gained across both races. You do not have to do both races to be selected but are more likely to be in the top four or six if you do.

The races will be as follows:

  • North Tyne Classic, Abbey Rapids Sprint – 18th & 19th Jan 2020
  • Tryweryn Classic, Campsite to above Bala Mill. Sprint, Campsite Sprint course 1st & 2nd February.

The selection committee will meet shortly after this. An early selection is needed due to the logistical issues of getting boats to the USA for the world championships and world cups at the end of April.

Junior and U23 selection will take place at Ironbridge on June 20 and 21. Registration for this will open after 1st December 2019.
