From and ECA perspective I think this is fantastic news, the clubs and coaches can only benefit Jeff’s knowledge and enthusiasm, the following is an email we recived from Jeff: 


Dear Club or Centre

 
I am writing to inform you that as of the 5th October 2017, I have taken on the voluntary role of Regional Coaching Representative (RCR), many will know the position as the RCO.
 
For those that don’t already know me from my days as the British Canoeing regional development officer (CDO), I am a BCU Level 3 Inland coach, and have been coaching since 1994. I started Paddlesport career in 1974 sea kayaking, moving onto white water touring, slalom K1, C1 & C2 (Currently ranked in K1 & C2). I am still sea kayaking, and frequently paddle an open canoe.
 
My priority is to get a strong communication pathway established between the regions coaches, and the first instant their Area Coaching Representative (ACR), and via the coaching team and myself, to the national level. Our goal is to also establish three Coaching Matters Events (CME) per year in the region, so that coaches can have opportunities to update. Many will know them as Coach Updates. We also need the contact name and details of your organisations coaching lead, to make sure we are conversing with the correct representative.
 
Please, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding coaching in your organisation.

Community Project Funding

E-mail sent by Member 182c56c, Monday, 21st August 2017 @ 4:51pm

Hello All

Our British Canoeing Area Developmet Officer Russ Smith has kindly sent across the following information, which could be a possible funding idea for any clubs or groups who have a community project in mind:
  https://www.aviva.co.uk/good-thinking/community-fund/?cmp=otl-acf-outreach---sport_&_rec_alliance 


Community Project Funding

 

In our five year strategy, The Heart of an Active Nation we set out how to shape the future landscape of sport and recreationWe're specifically focusing on grassroots sport and recreation because that is the area which needs most support to get the nation active. Providing opportunities to encourage the inactive to try new sport and recreational activities is key, but we understand that a lack of funding can be a barrier to starting or maintaining current projects that work within local communities.

This is why we want to let you know about the Aviva Community Fund, which launches on 12 September to give community projects, including those working in sport and recreation, the chance to win funding that will change lives. Community projects of all sizes have the chance to win, with four funding levels, ranging from up to £1,000 to up to £25,000.

To be eligible, your project must enrich the community, making positive changes to people’s lives in one of these four categories:

  • Health and wellbeing - The health and wellbeing category aims to help people take control of their physical and mental health. This is the category for any project linked to physical or mental health, sport, outdoor pursuits or anything of that nature.
  • Skills for life - The skills for life category aims to help communities and individuals improve their lives by learning useful new skills, particularly digital ones. Projects in this category can help people of all ages – from schools to groups for older people – develop skills to make their lives easier or more fulfilling.
  • Community support - The community support category aims to help communities make their surroundings and aspects of their life sustainable. From regeneration projects to local support groups, this category offers support for anything that is important to your wider community, including community events.
  • Inclusivity - The inclusivity category aims to help projects bring people together, no matter what their faith, colour, gender, abilities or sexual orientation. Projects in this category will help build relationships and develop closer ties within the community.

This year the first 200 projects in the £1,000 funding level who reach 1,000 votes will automatically get £1,000 (subject to due diligence checks).

With more chances than ever before to win, get involved today and share this opportunity with your local clubs and community projects!

Safety Kayakers for Great Swim events.

E-mail sent by Member 182c56c, Tuesday, 6th June 2017 @ 1:52pm

Forwarded message for those qualified and would like to take part please enquire below



Hello

We are looking for safety kayakers to provide support at a couple of our events -  the Great East Swim and the Suunto Great London Swim – and I was wondering if you would know of any people/clubs that may be interested in taking part. 

Safety kayakers are crucial to the safe delivery of our Great Swim events. They work as a team to provide safety cover around the course under the guidance of an experienced team leader from Swim Safety. It is also a great experience and a fun day out!

This year the Great East Swim is taking place at Alton Water, Suffolk on the 17th of June. The Suunto Great London Swim is at Newham and will be taking place 1st July.  Kayakers will be paid £100 for each event.  

I would be really grateful If you could spread the word. 
The link for the online registration is here: http://greatswim.org/kayaker

Many thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!

Free K2

E-mail sent by Member 182c56c, Wednesday, 26th April 2017 @ 10:57pm

Hello All

Following on from the previous email  Peter Coltman has said

We would really like to get this boat out of our club as we have some new sea boats coming. It is free to a good home for anyone who can collect it. It is a Nomad 6.


Colchester Canoe Club have got a K2 built by Nomad that is sitting in the club and never used. It needs some attention to repair the cockpit rim, a part of which is missing but seems to be a flexible strip that can be replaced and probably isn't a big issue. The cables on the rudder are also a complete mess and need to be stripped out and restrung. We know we are not going to do this or use the boat and would prefer to see someone getting some use out of it. 

Text Peter Coltman on 07802 233504 for further info and a chance to view

If this is a craft you would like but unsure on how to repair a cockpit rim or repair of the cables and rudder there are ECA members who may be able to help to get this repaired just ask  Paul Younger 07850 780002
