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 crcatschairman@gmail.com.

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 chrisbaillie62@gmail.com or ring 07712527276.

Entries are coming in steadily and I recommend you get your entry in before you make accommodation or travel arrangements.

Tryweryn Div 1 6th/7th June

Applying for your Bib

Postage rates are increasing from 30th March. Please make sure you put enough postage on your bib application and your bib envelope.


Make sure you send your bib application to the right person. Don't forget your national association card or a photocopy, £9 deposit (cheques payable to BCU Slalom Committee) or a valid £8 bib voucher, and a large, strong SAE with postage for 150g.

Make sure you put enough postage on your bib application – 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.

Bib Application Form>

Div 1 K1W: Sally will be at the Shepperton and Tully Div 1 races. She will bring your bib if you send her your bib application form, proof of membership and bib voucher beforehand.

Div 1 K1M: Nick will be at the Shepperton and Tully Div 1 races and will bring your bib if you send your bib application form, proof of membership and bib voucher beforehand.

Paddling Up

If you are ranked in Division 1, 2 or 3 you can enter races for the next Division up from your own. Take the opportunity to experience bigger water and compare yourself with higher-ranked paddlers! MORE>

But please note: The "host" divisions for any race (Div 1s at a Div 1, Div 1s and Div 2s at a Div 1/2 and so on) have priority over paddle-up entries until two weeks before the race. Until then, the organiser can't confirm that you have a place, however early you got your entry in.

Are You a Master?

If you are a Master (over 35), want to be included in the Masters' League (check it!) and are not, please email  with your year of birth.
