By: icklepaddler On: 14-03-2018

Entries for DCPL Spring 2018 has opened - First come, first served (usual promotion/regulation rules apply)
Closing Date: 5th January 2018 unless the league fills up before that. We expect there to be more than 28 teams and we had to turn away teams last season, so get your entries in to avoid disappointment!
To register, login with your username and password and then press the Red "Register Now" button on the right hand side.

BE ADVISED... This season, DCPL will run a half league so instead of everyone playing each team twice, they would play each team once. 

Why? Due to our late start in Autumn and taking into consideration bank holidays/competitions/pool availability, if we ran the league as normal we would not finish until end of June/start of July, which the majority agree is too late. The half league means we'll finish up end of April in time for the May Bank Holiday and giving teams the freedom to get outdoors for the summer!

This is not expected to happen every year and there is already actions ongoing to set a timetable for the following seasons (Autumn 2018/Spring 2019). 

Also, from Spring 2018, every team will need to have 2+ referees. Anyone wishing to become a referee must complete a written exam before they will be shadowed and/or assessed. We recommend this to be done straight away. Our refereeing officer Sean Downes will be facilitating Referee Exams during DCPL over the next 6 weeks. Booking in advance is required. To book send us a message on facebook or email canoedcpl@gmail.com
