PEMBERTON, BC – It will be water on and game on for Canada’s top slalom paddlers this weekend as they plummet down the Rutherford River in British Columbia for the 2014 Canadian Slalom CanoeKayak Team Trials. Athletes will race through whitewater, taking the fastest lines they can find through a course of green downstream gates and red upstream gates in pursuit of claiming a spot on the National Team. Results of the weekend trials will determine who will represent Canada at World Cups and World Championships.

Competitors will race two runs on Saturday and two runs on Sunday on a different course. Their three best runs will count towards their overall ranking and performance standards will be used to select teams. Media are invited to attend and information can be sent to those who cannot attend but are interested in covering the event.
