Para Va'a Qualification for WDC 2019

06 Mar 2019

 

ATTENTION AUSTRALIAN ADAPTIVE PADDLERS
If you are interested in representing Australia in the Para Va’a mixed V6 teams or V1 at the IVF World Distance Championships being held on the Sunshine Coast in August this year please contact me by either email trishjoh@bigpond.net.au or mobile 0437186622.
Adaptive paddlers will not be required to attend the selection camp on the 6th &7th of April as previously advised.
Once we have an idea where the paddlers are located, we will have a separate session just for AP’s. I have been in contact with the IVF and the President has advised that there will be correspondence coming soon that will clarify the classification for Para Va’a. Currently there are only 2 teams nominated for V6 Mixed and the IVF have indicated they may allow some flexibility regarding making up the teams.
It has been difficult to move forward on this as I have been waiting on information from the IVF. Please contact me as soon as possible so I can gather the information and plan the next steps. Any feedback and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
