Inclusion and accessibility are going to be key focuses of Canoeing Ireland in the coming year. After attending the National Conference for Inclusion 2016 last week the staff at Canoeing Ireland were impressed by all of the speakers and the challenges many of them have overcome to participate in a wide range of activities. We look forward to being able to provide opportunities to many more participants in canoe sport in 2017.

The ICF is calling for designs and models for new Canoe Slalom Gates that would allow the audience and spectators to clearly understand touches by athletes. The design of the Gate should easily demonstrate when a touch is made by an athlete. The goal is to further enhance Sport presentation at our events.
The gate design can be electronic or mechanical in nature.
The Gate system should be usable for all levels of Canoe Slalom competition.
The ICF will award one (1) cash prize to the selected design for electronic gate and one (1) cash prize for the selected design for mechanical gate, plus further help in construction for the selected projects for making a prototype.
The competition is open to fans, athletes, coaches, national federations and companies related to canoeing. You can apply by email to email@example.com.
The ICF will accept drawings, videos, sketches and powerpoint presentations of potential designs.
The ICF is expecting from the bidders the following information:
Deadline for submissions is 1st July 2016.
The ICF Canoe Slalom Technical Committee and ICF Vice President and Three times Olympic Gold Medallist Tony Estanguet will be the judges for the design competition.
Note: ICF reserves the right to select components of each entry and use the designs in whichever format it deems appropriate. Recognition will be given to those parties from which any use of novel or innovative ideas are taken.
