Twenty-one paddlers who call Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club their home team will be competing for positions on the US National Junior and Senior Teams that will compete at International Events this summer.

The Lanier Canoe and Kayak Club, a legacy program of the 1996 Olympics for flatwater sprint canoe/kayak, has been home to dozens of athletes on the US National team over the past twenty years.
