Prem and Div 1 only: you can download, fill in, print, sign and post this entry card with your fee instead of the blue card.

Organisers won't accept your entry, or give it any priority, until they get your card and your cheque. DON'T email them "to book a place", you are wasting their time and your own.

International Races 2016

ECA Junior Cup Races will be reserved for Home Nation U16 Development. If places remain, individual paddlers’ entries will be submitted in the date order that they were received.

Level 3 & 4 Internationals priority goes to GB teams, and then to organised Podium Programme, Home Nation Programme, regional or club groups (in that order), then to individual competitors. Where no other criteria apply, places will be allocated by finishing positions at that year’s British Team Selection race series, Senior or Junior as appropriate.

The International Entries Officer () will publicise remaining places, with a closing date for applications to reach him, and will allocate places according to the criteria.

Applying for Your New Bib

Make sure you put enough postage on your bib application and send it to the right person. It may be a “large letter” under Royal Mail rules. If it is, and large letter postage hasn’t been paid, it is likely to be delayed and you will have to repay the penalty fees before you get your bib. The addresses are on the bib application form. Include a bib application form and don't forget your national association card or a photocopy, a bib voucher or £9 deposit (cheques payable to British Canoeing Slalom Committee) and a large, strong SAE with postage for 150g (£1.26 1st class or £1.19 2nd class).

Bib Numbers for 2016: K1W>   K1M>   C1W>   C1M>   C2>   Vets>

C1M: Carole McGranachan will be at the Stone mini slaloms and can give out C1 Men's bibs there. Anyone wishing to collect at a mini please  or get in touch via facebook private message. She will need your bib application form, bib voucher and a copy of your BC card.

K1M Prem: Tracy will take bibs to Tully if you get the paperwork to her before then.

Race Organisers

Event Safety - Important

Please could all clubs and race organisers note that:

1. Every ranking race must have a nominated Event Safety Officer who has completed the British Canoeing Event Safety Management training and will be present throughout the event.

2. A Risk Management Plan or Event Safety Plan MUST be forwarded to the Slalom Committee Safety Officer () in good time for approval for ALL EVENTS before they can proceed, and next year (2017 season) before they can be included in the calendar.

3. There is no fixed format for this documentation and it should be updated dynamically to deal with the issues identified for the event. If sites require a particular format it should be followed and will usually be entirely acceptable.

4. A final copy must be provided to the Jury Chair before the race commences, as in the 2015 season.

5. Plans should consider safety of paddlers (including rescue), spectators (including trip hazards and access), volunteers, welfare of minors, financial viability, catering, traffic and vehicle movements, campsite provision, cancellation and weather, as well as any other identified issues.

Failure to comply will unfortunately lead to removal of the race from the calendar in 2016.

Get Reinstated

Used to paddle slalom? Reckon you could still kick .....? Why not get reinstated and race again? Or you'd like to have a shot at another class, or you're just a good paddler who's never got into slalom, here's a form to make applying for reinstatement/ranking easy.
