[Sat, Jun 2, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM] Open House at the Feeder Canal – Lock #6

Have you or your kids ever wondered why so many people in DC drive around with kayaks on top of their cars? It’s because the Potomac River is one of the best natural kayaking locations in the US. Potomac Whitewater Racing Center (PWRC) is training several Olympic hopefuls in the sport of Slalom Kayaking, which is like slalom skiing only in a kayak.

We held an open house so you could see the sport in action on Saturday June 2, 9am – 12pm on the Feeder Canal near Brookmont Maryland.

 [04/06-04/08] 2018 Slalom Team Trials

This weekend, Potomac Whitewater had a strong showing at the U.S. Team Trials at the US Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC to determine the individuals representing the USA in 2018 World Championships in Rio, Brazil and Junior World Championships in Ivrea, Italy. Over 50 boats from across the country participated in one of the largest trials events in recent years. We are very proud of the participation and success of the members of Potomac Whitewater at the event. Congratulations to new US Junior National team members: Madison Corcoran K1, Michaela Corcoran C1, Nathanial Francis C1, and Kaelin Friedenson C1. We are also proud to announce returning Junior National Team members Avery Davis K1, Ria Sribar K1, Joshua Joseph K1, and Taylor Pitman K1. Finally, we recognize returning U23 and Senior Team members Casey Eichfeld C1, Ashley Nee K1, Fabien Lefevre C1 K1, and Tyler Westfall K1.

It is a great testament to the hard work and commitment of our athletes, parents and volunteers that the majority of the US Team is made up of active members of Potomac Whitewater Racing. Furthermore, the depth of athletes that participated from our club should allow us to maintain our contribution to the Team USA in the future. We wish everyone on the national team the best of luck on their roads to Rio and Ivrea this Summer. A summary of the team is below and detailed results can be found here:
