We are preparing all information about 2018 Congress


Congress 2018: October 26th, 27th, 28th

All information available in January 2018

Thanks !!!!

Once again we are pleased to introduce a new edition of one of the most featured events for canoeing fans, the "VII International Congress of Coaches on flat water canoeing" which will be held in Catoira (Pontevedra) on October 26th, 27th and 28th 2018.

Catoira is located 30 km from Santiago de Compostela airport, 40 km from Vigo airport and 150 km from Porto airport (Portugal), also is well connected by road via AP-9 highway and by rail.

In this edition simultaneous translation will be provided: spanish-english and english-spanish. In this fourth edition (the conference is held biannually), at this time of crisis, more than ever we want to thank all the sponsors and partners for their support, because otherwise we could not afford the organization.

We also want to thank the more than 150 coaches and canoeing enthusiasts who assist each event for their interest, which we expect once again. Since its beginning in 2004, coinciding with the celebration of the Athens Olympic Games, Congress has always had the Olympic Games and World Championship as a reference in order to review the best athletes and national teams, and to bring together the best national teams coaches and canoeing teams to try to work together and achieve greater impact of our sport. 

This time, coinciding with the London 2012 Olympic Games we will focus on the analysis of the techniques, tactics, materials, etc… of the various teams and athletes who meet in their respective finals.

Due to the specialization and preparation required to convey this information, the speakers of this congress are professionals with high qualification and preparation; we will count on prestigious coaches nationwide and worldwide and for the first time with the advice and support from International Canoe Federation.

Also we know the great effort made ​​by many students and researchers to submit the most relevant results from their research, which are the result of many years of study and dedication, so the best studies submitted will be awarded in the form of communication and posters.

Finally, we would like to publicly show our gratitude to everyone, public institutions, private companies and brands that support and assist with this event edition after edition. Lastly, remember that the International congress of coaches on flat water canoeing is more than just a conference, all those that have experienced it have repeated edition after edition and for those who have not participated it will be a milestone in their personal and professional trajectory.

We hope you all enjoy the beauty of the Rias Baixas of Galicia and especially its people, and we look forward to meet you on October 26th, 27th and 28th 2018.
