Did you hear?… AW and Teva partner on a series of 13 top whitewater events

American Whitewater and Teva are partnering on a series of 13 top whitewater events, all culminating with the first ever national championships -- one that is also sanctioned by the U.S. Freestyle Kayak Association.


American Whitewater and Teva are partnering on a series of 13 top whitewater events, all culminating with the first ever national championships — one that is also sanctioned by the U.S. Freestyle Kayak Association. The series includes a completely restructured competition framework that includes four geographic regional circuits located in the Northeast, Southeast, Rocky Mountains, and Pacific Coast. Each regional circuit includes three events. Athletes will receive points at each event to earn a spot to compete at the “Teva Whitewater National Championship.” According to American Whitewater, the 14 events that were invited to participate in the series were selected based on their consistency with American Whitewater’s mission, their ability to generate revenue to support AW’s work, the overall quality of the event including river features, event organization, venue, and the amount of exposure the event could generate for the event’s sponsors.
