Canoe Kayak Ontario (CKO) has developed a Talent Acceleration Program (TAP), targeted towards developing the LTAD Training to Train (T2T) stage athlete. The first phase of TAP is to host a CKO Summit on November 1 & 2, 2014 and provide strategies to athletes, parents and coaches on how to enhance the development of T2T athletes along the Athlete Pathway.

Canoe Kayak Ontario (CKO) Restructuring - Call for Volunteers
Whitewater Ontario is one of three affiliates of Canoe Kayak Ontario (the others are sprint racing and marathon racing). CKO is however the formally recognized Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) which is the interface with the ministry for sport and athlete funding. The funding WO receives from the provincial government comes to us via CKO.
CKO is currently undertaking an organizational review to reform its structure so that it is better positioned to maximize provincial funding, and in order to comply with new provincial legislation – the Ontario Not for Profit Corporations Act.
Initial discussions and consultations have been conducted and now CKO needs to develop and assess some restructuring options, that will impact on WO and WO’s relationship with CKO. To review and refine these options each affiliate is being asked to provide two representatives to form a working group for this purpose. These do no need to be board members. Steve Pomeroy who has been on the board for a number of years and has served as Treasurer and President will be one of these representatives. WO is seeking a volunteer interested in taking the second position. This will be a short term assignment lasting 3-6 months and will require review of documents and participation in conference calls and a possible face to face meeting. WO members with interest and/or expertise on organizational change and governance would be ideal.
