About

The Essex Canoeing Association exists to promote canoeing throughout Essex. The association is run by a committee drawn from the constituent clubs. There is currently no membership subscription - over recent years the ECA has been entirely supported by income from revenue from marathon canoe races. 

In the past the ECA has also run a slalom series and a polo league - these have fell into abeyance due to lack of anyone to organise them. A new Slalom Coordinater has recently been appointed (June 2013) - if you have ideas for developing slalom in Essex, or if you would be interested in taking on any of the other discipline areas not currently covered by the ECA, the committee would love to hear from you.

The ECA operates through the help of willing volunteers from across the county. If you would like to contribute to promoting canoeing of any kind in the region please come along to a committee meeting or, if you cannot get to one of the meetings, you can contact the committee by e-mail

A new ECA Constitution was approved at the meeting on 24/9/2013 and is available here . The committee is now undertaking a comprehensive review of the Development Plan.

 

Brief History of The Essex Canoeing Association

When the Association was originally founded it was called the Essex Young Canoeists Association - this was back in the early 1970's and it acted as a local branch of the British Schools Canoeing Association. The name was changed to the Essex Canoeing Association in April 1979.
