Due to Canoe Kayak Ontario (CKO) Sprint's inability to provide a fair, open and direct competition in 2020 and our athlete's limited training opportunities, CKO Sprint's 2020-2021 Ontario Team Program (OHPSI, OAAP & Development Team) nominations will be based on our current 2019-2020 nominations.
If a current 2019-2020 nominated athlete is excluded from the 2020-2021 Ontario Team Programs nominations due to a nomination to the National Team, retires or is unable to fulfil their Athlete Agreement, the next ranked athlete will be nominated to the 2020-2021 team based on 2019 Ontario Team selection results, using 2019-2020 Ontario Team selection criteria (OHPSI and OAAP Team only).
Additional athletes will have the opportunity to be nominated to the 2020-2021 Development Team based on a performance evaluation at the 2020 Ontario Championships and/or additional performance indicators. Full details to be provided by June 22, 2020.
CKO Sprint is committed to hosting the Ontario Championships on August 29-30, 2020, where we will celebrate the successes, determination and commitment of our athletes, coaches, clubs, and paddling community. However, this will not be an in-person event where all of us come together in one location. Instead, we will host the event simultaneously in multiple locations, either by Division, region or on an individual club basis with live, real-time results. How the event will be hosted will be based on Public Health recommendations and ensuring the health and safety of our paddling community.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
