I want to emphasise that this is as well as the divisional structure and not instead of it. Perhaps the number of ranking competitions might reduce to make space for regional races, but clubs will run more races and more interclub and then inter regional races with better turnouts.

Perhaps a motion to put the committee would be to develop club focused, interclub, inter regional and inter home nation competition structure with a focus on clubs being funded to attract 20 new paddlers into a structured coaching program at their club. The goal would be to produce a structure to facilitate club / regional competition as a platform for recruitment and retention.

Maybe A motion might be to engage with the canoeing family of current and former competitors and poll opinion on what we can do to grow participation and improve retention.

Also...give them some weight. Add an automatic GB selection competition place for people that win the inter regional race series...
