High Performance Training Centre Investigation
Canoe Racing New Zealand is undertaking a preliminary study on options for establishing a High Performance Training Centre (HPTC) in the future. This work is being funded by High Performance Sport New Zealand and is being undertaken by sports management consultant Peter Dale.
The purpose of the project is to define the most appropriate location where a HPTC could be established to support long-term sustainable high performance growth for CRNZ. The scope of this work includes identifying the key functions required for a HPTC to meet the needs of our 2016/2020 High Performance Plan, developing criteria to assess potential locations against, and assessing suitability of potential locations against these criteria.
Considerable progress has been made investigating a wide range of possible sites and a short list of the most favourable locations has been established. The sites being considered further include:
Wairoa River, Tauranga; Lake Tikitapu, Rotorua; Lake Karapiro, Cambridge; and Lake Pupuke, Auckland.
The final report making recommendations on the suitability of these short listed sites will be received by the Board in late February.
