Australia has experienced outstanding international success in the canoe sprint discipline, winning a medal at every Olympic Games since 1980. In order to ensure we continue to experience international success into the future, AC must create and support high quality sustainable pathways for athletes and coaches, with a clear, evidence-based methodology for how we identify and develop talent.
Five major initiatives underpin the Canoe Sprint National Pathway Strategy for the short-term period until the 2016 Rio Olympic Games:
1. National Elite Development Program
2. Surf Life Saving Australia Next Wave Partnership
3. Australian Institute of Sport Sports Draft
4. National Coaching Curriculum Update
5. Coach Connect Coach Mentoring Program
To find out more about each of these initiatives, please follow the link below to view the 2014-2016 National Pathway Strategy for Canoe Sprint.
Updates and more detailed information regarding pathway activities will be announced as they become available.
