Sprint Canoe Kayak Provincial Championship
The top Québec paddlers in canoe-kayak sprint in the M16, M18 and Open and Masters categories will compete in this provincial meet which will be held at Parc Jean-Drapeau's Olympic Basin.
This annual sports event is an opportunity to do performance evaluations and determine the level for each athlete, as well as bring their ranking up to date. The ranking of the respective sports clubs is also revised, since the status is tied to the points compiled by the athletes at various canoe-kayak events.
The competitions are doubly important for Québec athletes seeking to qualify for the Canadian championships because they are also used as division championships.
Come to the Olympic Basin to cheer on the athletes and their teams at this entertaining sports event.
|August 9-11, 2019||8 a.m. to 5 p.m.|
