2021 Junior Sprint World Championship Squad and the National Development Squad

Congratulations to the NSW athletes selected to the 2021 Junior World Championship Squad and the National Development Squad!

Teams have been renamed to Squads in 2021 in light of the recent announcement by Paddle Australia that National Teams would not be participating in International competitions in 2021.

This is no way diminishes the achievements of our athletes over the past year and each is to be congratulated on their achievements.

Of the 10 athletes selected to the Juniors Squad, 5 are from NSW and on the NDS, of the 23 athletes selected, 9 are from NSW and athletes are representing four separate clubs from across our state!

Congratulations to you all!!
