Four members of the Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club (KCKC) have cracked the provincial team for the 2017-2018 season.
Matao Buist, Stanley Netherton, Spencer Robinson and Michael Lanyon, who train under KCKC coach Stanislav Marek, were named to the Canoe Kayak BC (CKBC) team on Wednesday.
“The team has a number of great leaders and the entire group is hungry to be competitive at next year’s Nationals,” CKBC coach Blake Dalton said.
The CKBC performance program recognizes and supports athletes who have potential to make junior, under-23, senior development and national teams.
Athletes were selected based on results from last season.
Team members and coaches receive sport-science resources, enrolment in training camps and support for regattas, trials and championships.
Thirty-three paddlers, most of them from the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, are on the provincial team.
