It is great news that Strathallan Canoe Club has become the 4th Canoe Club to achieve Direct Club Investment from sportscotland. Strathallan Canoe Club is a strong canoe club that wishes to grow and flourish, with its main interest lying with Canoe slalom. This DCI investment of £26,000 is spread over 4 years and will enable the club to employ a part-time coach. The coach’s task will be to establish a junior pathway for 9 -14 year olds after school. This is supported by volunteer coaches who together hope to take young paddlers from beginner to Premier level in Canoe slalom. The success of this club is down to the hard work and commitment of the coaches and committee pulling together.
Strathallan's Jane Gibson says " how excited we are at this opportunity to expand our club and provide more opportunities for youngsters to start paddling and develop them along the competition pathway. We are looking forward to working closely with our colleagues in Active Schools and the Perth and Kinross Sports Development Team to increase participation in this great watersport",
Advertising for the role of Club coach will commence soon.
