Sessions on the Lee Valley Olympic Course

Prem and Div 1 Paddlers

From now until 21st December there are opportunities for you to paddle the Olympic Course at Lee Valley in specific canoe slalom sessions. Gates will be out and you will share the water with international paddlers who are preparing for the Europeans at Lee Valley in 2020. The sessions will be an hour long and the price is 20.00 per session.

If you are interested please contact Siran Cetin to find out what dates and times are available.

Stafford and Stone Canoe Club are Recruiting

Stafford and Stone Canoe Club are looking for a Canoe Slalom Coach to lead our current beginner group. This is for a group of 10 paddlers who have now been canoeing weekly for 6 months.

The coached session is on Thursday and starts at 18:30 to 20:00. We currently pay 2 hours for the session which allows for opening the club in advance and closing afterwards. Contribution to expenses may be possible. There may also be the opportunity for some weekend work with the same group. Need to be self-employed working under a contract for services.

The coach will ideally be qualified as British Canoeing Slalom Coach (under the new scheme) or equivalent.

Please apply to .

Returning Bibs

It's the end of the season and it's time to return your bib. Please send it back to your Bib Officer, with at least 1.32 in postage on the envelope, and enclose a small stamped addressed envelope for your bib voucher.

K1W Div 2 & 3: Donna will be at the ACM on the 30th November if any club reps want to return bibs on behalf of their paddlers.

K1M Prem: Tracy will be at Lee Valley the 9th/10th November weeken.

K1M Div 1 & 2: Nick will take bibs at the ACM.

K1M Div 3: Karen will take bibs at the ACM.

C1M Div 2 and 3: Nigel will be at Shepperton, and at Stone every Tuesday night and HPP most Wednesday evenings. Just find the big blue van or Vet bib 8.

What to do if you got promoted late in the year

If you have been promoted late in the year and won't be racing in your new division until next year, get in touch with the Bib Officer for your new division. He/she will probably ask you to fill in a bib application form and post it (or scan and email it) so they can complete their records.

You should return your bib to your old Bib Officer. And PLEASE make sure you put enough postage on! MORE>

Calendar for 2020

You can view the provisional race calendar for next year HERE>. It's very much provisional - don't make bookings around it! Some changes are already in the pipeline.

You have to log in (same login as for CanoeSlalomEntries).

If you have a sponsor...

Or a second club, please email  to get it put on the ranking database. Adding it to your online entry will get it into the results for that race, but it won't get it anywhere more permanent.

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.
