Team USA

The USDBF has worked hard for several years revising and developing its Team USA Coach Selection process. With the help of many coaches and paddlers from across our nation, we created a Team USA Coach Selection Committee and application process that was used for the first time for 2015 TEAM USA. We are excited to continue the process and have made some adjustments based on coach feedback for TEAM USA 2017.
