About National Team Trials (NTT):

Like our Provincial Trials, Canoe Kayak Canada holds annual events to rank and assess paddlers and select top athletes for Canada Teams. The NTT competition uses the International Canoe Federation Rules, with a minimum competition age of 15. NTT, along with the Canadian Club Champs, represents the best quality domestic racing in our sports system. Some paddlers hope to earn the chance to represent Canada; Selection Criteria - HERE. Most competitors want the opportunity to line up next to others their age from teams across the country.

Is this event for you?
This event is not for all ability levels, and the decision to endorse the athletes is left to the coach. Speak to your coach. In some cases, the coach may feel you are ready to attend for the first-time experience as part of your preparation for future years. It may simply be where you meet your competition as part of your regular performance development pathway. Most paddlers in age group finals at the Canadian Championships will also be at the NTT. 

Athlete Supervision:
The coaches will have charge of the group while at the event. Coaches appreciate any parents who may be on-site and willing to assist from time to time or run errands, but we expect the team to be able to function independently and responsibly. All athletes must behave appropriately and represent themselves, the Canoe Club and Alberta well. Calgary paddlers will be held to a very high standard and display the highest degree of sportsmanship.

Hotel in Montreal
Rooms have been set aside at the Hotel Chrome Montreal Centre-Ville 215, Blvd Rene Levesque Montreal H2X 1N7.

Meals in Montreal
Athletes are responsible for meals. Grocery stores and restaurants are plentiful and within walking distance from the hotel.

Competition Site:
The event will be at the Olympic Basin on parc Jean-Drapeau and a quick Metro ride to the City Centre and the hotel. The racecourse and facility are a legacy of the 1976 Olympic Games and have hosted many Canadian Championships and international events. The site is home to one of Canoe Kayak Canadas Team Training Centres. Click here for more about the venue.

Transportation in Montreal
Included below is the route between the hotel and the competition site. The trip to the course involves a short walk to the nearest metro station and a short metro ride to the park. 

Your Equipment:
We will be partnering with Saskatchewan to put boats on their trailer. We expect to deliver our boats to SK on or about June 18th.

Athlete Travel (Flights)
Where possible, it is recommended team members communicate their flights so they can fly together and share a taxi or Uber to the hotel.  Remember hotel check-in is 3 PM. PLEASE do not assume anything; check with your coach before booking. If unsure, get the cancellation insurance. 

Note: Athletes selected for Team AB will be racing in Ottawa July 1-2. Team AB will arrange travel in and out of Ottawa. 

By registering for this event, you agree to the following:
Team members will respect teammates, coaches and facility personnel at all times.

Paddlers must make the beds and ensure the entire living space is clean and organized. All paddlers are expected in their beds by 10:00 PM each night. Performance and alcohol do not go together regardless of the age of the majority.

Damage to the premises or improper use of equipment leading to damage is the user's responsibility, and restitution will be required.

Team expectations are the responsibility of the coaches. Enforcement may include being sent home at personal expense and restriction from future CCC team events — costs due to flight changes etc., are the athlete's responsibility.

I acknowledge having read and agreed to the conduct regulations. Also, I release and forever discharge the Calgary Canoe Club and affiliated association and persons from all claims, demands, actions or causes of actions arising from or because I participated in the event. In addition, no claims or demands whatsoever in law or equity that my heirs, executors, administrators, or assigns can, shall or may have against the organizations above against my liabilities incurred by one of them.

By registering, I certify that I understand I am responsible for out-of-province medical and personal boat insurance. I am fully aware of the dangers associated with air and passenger travel and the risks of water sports.
