Six Chilliwack Paddlers Named To 2018-19 CKBC Provincial Team

Burnaby – Thirty-eight of BC’s top sprint and slalom canoe and kayak paddlers have been selected to Canoe Kayak BC’s provincial team. Among the team members are national sprint team member Brian Malfesi (Ridge) and national slalom team members Austin Atkins, Finley Capstick and Jacob Kryworuchko (Chilliwack Centre of Excellence).

Six in total, are from Chilliwack.

Athletes were selected based on their results from the past season including national team selection, BC performance standard or nomination by the Coach’s Technical Committee. The complete selection criteria is available on the CKBC website (sprint, slalom).

“The selection of the 2018-19 Provincial Team caps a very successful competitive season for our paddlers,” said Blake Dalton, CKBC’s provincial coach. “Our sprint and slalom athletes had unprecedented success at their national championships and that is reflected on this provincial team.”

The CKBC performance program recognizes and supports athletes who have a potential to make junior, U23 and senior development and national teams. They have also shown a commitment to training to achieve these goals.

“I’m excited to see the provincial team numbers increasing and the athletes commitment to improve,” added Dalton. “This is due in large part to our club coaches, CSI- P/PacificSport, volunteers and staff.”

The team members and their coaches receive sport science resources, participation in training camps and support for various regattas, trials and championships.
