The event is open to anyone under 18 who has a reasonable white water roll. As part of the overall freestyle world championships, the younguns event is designed to inspire young paddlers from all backgrounds into the sport in a safe and friendly environment. Parents & guardians must remain in control of their children at all times and they are also invited to be on the water at the same time.


 The event is £20 to enter, however all participants must sign on through the British Canoeing Event Organisation page in the link below. You will then be issued with special Younguns bib so we can easily identify who is part of the group (separating them from all the other national team competitors). Please read the terms and conditions for river access prior to registering for this event.


Places are strictly limited and this is a first come first served event. To participate, please complete the form below (to be completed by an adult). We will then send you an email confirming your entry with further details prior to the event in Nottingham.

All entries will receive a special gift!
