CR Cats - Recruitment of Development Coach
CR Cats will be recruiting a Development Coach in
the near future, potentially starting in May. This is early notice
ahead of any adverts going out. If you are interested, please contact
Johnny Brown or David Campbell at
This post has been made possible by a Direct Club
Investment grant from SportScotland. The grant is for 4 years and
thereafter we need to be self-sustaining.
This is a Development Coach role, to bring paddlers
into the sport and develop their paddling to Div 1 level, before
they choose to enter Performance pathways. The post will require
flexible working and will be 15 to 20 hours a week, based in
Clackmannanshire (central Scotland).

Pinkston Div 1/GB Vet and J16 Champs
The Pinkston slalom on 20/21st June is a double Div 1. Any paddler in
Div 1 can enter both days.
It is also the GB Vet and J16 and Under Championships that weekend. Any
paddler in either of these age groups, in whatever division or class,
can enter the Champs.
In order to allow as large a Div 1 entry as possible, the K1M, C1W and
C2 Champs will be on Saturday and the K1W and C1M Champs on Sunday. So
for example if you are a Prem J14 paddler in K1M but a Div 1 C1M you
could race K1 and C1 on Saturday but only C1 on Sunday.
Any problems email
firstname.lastname@example.org or ring 07712527276.
Entries are coming in steadily and I recommend you get your entry in
before you make accommodation or travel arrangements.
Interclubs planning for this year is well under way, and Invitation
letters have been emailed out to all participating clubs from last year.
If you have not received an invitation letter and you think you should
have, please email
