CR CATS paddlers in Division 2 and above are eligible to join Central Squads.
Some of our Division 3 paddlers will get the opportunity to take part in some of the development squad days at Alva as ‘invites’.
Central Squads operates above whatever the club organises and enables our better paddlers to attend training camps at Pinkston, Tully, Holme Pierrepont and Lee Valley along with paddlers from other Scottish Clubs.
It is run by Jane Gibson from Strathallan CC and welcomes paddlers from CR CATS, Breadalbane, ESKC, Aberdeen, Pinkston Panthers and Forth CC.

These are used as a basis to organise coach resource. Please can you keep these up to date with your plans and if you need to update your attendance because you can now attend or can no longer attend, please update the doodle poll and add a comment.
Numbers for camps will be finalised 4 weeks before any camp. Withdrawal after this may be charged as these camps need to cover the coaching costs.
