ICF to run talent camp for women paracanoe athletes ahead of Paris 2024

 ICF to run talent camp for women paracanoe athletes ahead of Paris 2024 4.7.2021
ICF-PARACANOE will be hosting a Talent Identification Programme (TIP) Camp in Copenhagen for the upcoming World Championships ( 10th to 19th September). 

All national federations (NFs) who are developing women paracanoe athletes are encouraged to apply. Preference will be given to NF’s who have had low female participation in paracanoe events to date.
Funding from the ICF is limited. All on-site competition costs will be covered by ICF. Travel costs and visa approvals will be the responsibility of each NF.  
We encourage NF’s to contact their National Paralympic Committee for assistance to help this Paris 2024 development activity. It is important to note that the first Qualifier for the Paris 2024 Paralympic Games will be only 21 months after the Copenhagen World Championships.
Female coaches from applying nations are also encouraged to participate under the same conditions.
