It is with great pleasure that I announce to you that the SaskWhitewater Canoe Slalom Program has officially been named the Regional Development Program for Saskatchewan!!! Under Canoe Kayak Saskatchewan and Canoe Kayak Canada Whitewater, our slalom program will benefit from a grant of $10000.00 to offer canoe slalom programs in Saskatchewan. This is a huge boost to our slalom program which is in its second season in Saskatoon. The grant will be used to supplement the coaching fees for our Youth and Canoe Slalom programs. SaskWhitewater’s very own Brendan Curson has been hired by CKS and CKC to coach slalom programs in Saskatchewan as well as fulfil the other part of the grant requirement, working as a technical coach with the Canadian National Canoe Slalom Team at international races and camps.
