COPAC creates the IPCa


About Us

Created by COPAC – Pan American Canoe Confederation, IPCa has a bold and innovative proposal. It will offer training in four distinct fundamental areas to the promotion of Canoe: Coaches; Officiating; Paracanoe Managers and Classifiers, all offered in a distance education format and translated into English, Spanish, Portuguese and French, comprising all 41 countries affiliated with Panam Sports, 27 active members of COPAC and two invited territories, working so that Canoe reaches all the countries of the Americas.

The expectation is that the training starts in July, online. According to the general coordinator of the IPCa, Fátima Fernandes, most of the material will be shared free of charge.


“It is the sport that I believe in”


“Canoe is a sport for everyone, regardless of age, gender, with or without disabilities”


“Anyone who is really involved in Canoe wants to see kids in the water”
