Many paddlesport disciplines require dedicated and competent officials to fulfill various functions at all levels of competition.

Canoe Kayak BC invites you to volunteer as an official at regattas. Many positions are very easily learned and there will be courses given throughout the year for those who wish to progress further. Each club should have a rulebook for you to borrow, the reading of which will enhance your knowledge of the sport and what the people in white are doing. 

For more information contact the Director of Officials.
