British National Training Squad

The British National Training Squad or BNTS for short is where potential GB paddlers can meet the GB Coaches and squads, get an idea of the training sessions and expectation of being a GB paddler and prepare themselves for the GB trials.

Each GB squad will have different arrangements for their BNTS sessions.However all will have a few before running trials and eventually selecting the GB paddlers they want to represent Great Britain in either the IDBF World  Championships or the EDBF European Nations Championships.

To attend BNTS training you should be a BDA Individual Member. You will also need to contact the training squad to confirm your attendance at each session.
