Our Affiliations

Scottish Canoe Association (SCA)

Both sprint and marathon racing are governed by the SCA. We strongly recommend club members become members of the SCA.  SCA membership is required to receive medals in Scottish Championship events, to compete at national events (such as Nottingham Sprint Regattas or Hasler Marathon events) and also provides a number of other benefits including insurance, reduced prices for coaching and other events, Scottish Paddler magazine etc. Most importantly, please don’t assume that your actions affecting other people are covered by insurance, unless you are yourself, a member of the SCA in our own right.

Additionally, LKR is affiliated to the SCA, which provides the following benefits for the club and its members:

  • Certificate of Affiliation(see below)
  • Civil Liability Insurance for their official designated club activities

  • Advice, guidance and resources on club development
  • Right to organise events (having obtained prior permission) under the auspices of the SCA
