Canoeing and Kayaking
U.S. Canoe and Kayak Team (USCKT) was established to recruit, train and support athletes to compete in the Olympic Games in flatwater sprint and whitewater slalom canoe/kayak racing. USCKT continues to advance the level of awareness of Olympic paddlesport through programs such as Team Trials, National Championships and Junior Olympic programs to take advantage of the growing visibility for paddlesports. USCKT provides a wide array of programs and services for athletes, coaches, officials and event organizers. Additionally USCKT produces 10-15 major national and international events annually; provides information and services and works with the national media to promote the sport, athletes, events and programs; develops and maintains relationships with corporate partners and works closely with the U.S. Olympic Committee to maximize funding and support for USCKT programs. Based in Indianapolis, USCKT maintains a professional staff and utilizes the services of hundreds of volunteers across the country to promote Olympic canoeing and kayaking.
