OPERATION AND VISION:
With the aim of promoting kayaking in Ecuador, promoting the conservation of rivers, and creating a national ranking that shows which are the best kayakers in the country in the kayak slalom modality, Kayak Club Ecuador organizes the third National Selective Kayak Slalom Championship .
The ranking obtained in this championship will facilitate the selection processes in the country for sending athletes to international competitions representing Ecuador.
The national and international selection mechanisms are not in charge of Kayak Club Ecuador and that is the responsibility of the Ecuadorian Canoe Federation, the Ministry of Sports and the Ecuadorian Olympic Committee.
The National Championship is based on a meritocratic qualification system where the results obtained by the competitors will speak for themselves, fully respecting the best times recorded by each athlete and classified according to their ages by categories.
There is a time control committee which is made up of 5 members from different provinces (Pastaza, Napo, Morona Santiago, Pichincha, Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas) who control and audit the judges' rulings, times and penalties.
We want to improve every year and we believe that we are on the right track and we want your support to position our athletes at an international level with the mission that each year the quality and quantity of talented children, young people and adults who practice this activity in Ecuador grow. .
