AWA Provincials 2020

September 11-13

The Alberta Whitewater Association Provincials is being held at Canoe Meadows on the Kananaskis River. The Provincials brings together a broad group of whitewater kayak and canoe enthusiasts and their families:

from novice to international medal winners

competing in  slalom, boatercross/creek race and freestyle at both the novice and advanced levels

paddlers from 8 to 68 years of age.  

participants from Lethbridge, Pincher Creek, Crowsnest Pass, Calgary, Canmore, Banff, Cochrane, Innisfail, Red Deer,  Sundre,  Medicine Hat, Edmonton, Jasper, Grande Prairie as well as more northerly communities and points in-between.

50 athlete maximum

The newly renovated Canoe Meadows is the perfect family friendly venue for this event with camping adjacent to the slalom race course and freestyle waves, a picnic shelter, playing field, walking paths and numerous attractions nearby. So once you get here and get your camp unpacked, you can park your vehicle for the weekend and not worry about running all over the place.

We have made this into a 3 day weekend with clinics on Friday evening and competitions on Saturday & Sunday. 

The events are being put on by AWA, Waterwerks, and Alberta Slalom Canoe Kayak.

Saturday and Sunday will have a variety of events for everyone. Points will be earned in each event and will be counted towards the overall Alberta Whitewater Champion. The overall male and female champions in Cadets, Juniors, Seniors and Masters have a chance to win a major prize and prizes will be awarded to all other competitors on the windup awards Monday afternoon. 

This was an excellent event last year, in fact the Provincials has been one of Alberta's premiere kayaking events since 1977. We hope to build on the success and have the best ever Provincials. I look forward to having you join us this year.

The race fees fees are.  $40 for all events, $20 for one event.

Clinic fees for Friday are $20 for 1 session.

Camping is $15.00/night for singles and $26.00/night for families.
