2021 PA Canoe Sprint Championships – Newsletter 9


25 June 2021

Dear Canoe Sprint Community,

The 2021 PA Canoe Sprint Championships (Sprint Championships) survey closed on Monday 21 June at midnight. There were 108 respondents with 71 completing and 37 partially completing the survey.

The survey included responses from participating athletes (26.9%), coaches (14%), support staff (4.3%), officials and volunteers (21.5%), family/friends (30.1%), and supporters (3.2%).

I am incredibly pleased to report the overall satisfaction with the PA 2021 Sprint Championships event was 87.6% very satisfied or satisfied, 10.5% neutral, and 1.9% dissatisfied. To review the the full survey outcomes download the survey results HERE



The next step is for the PA to do a review and debrief of the survey findings to produce a list of recommendations from community feedback and technical feedback for future PA Canoe Sprint Championships.

I wish to thank each and every person who participated in the post-event survey so PA can ensure all learnings are not lost and the next events can be improved and in line with the needs and wishes for a greater united paddling community for everyone.

PA cannot wait to see even more competitors at the 2022 PA Canoe Sprint Championships being held at Champion Lakes in Perth, Western Australia from 29 March to 2 April 2022. Make sure you lock the dates in your diary now.

I am sure next year’s event will be bigger and better than ever. More news to come shortly.
