Officials are integral to the competitive side of the Alberta Whitewater Association. They run races and competitions. Anyone can become an official, but there is some training involved. Please check here for upcoming clinics.
There are different kinds of officials for each discipline. Some will operate watches while others decide if a trick was performed and awards points accordingly.
If you want to get involved as an official to our sport, please contact the Executive Director or one of the Competitive Disciplines contacts to get connected.
