The Hasler Series
The Hasler Series is run throughout the year, allowing all different ages, abilities and clubs to compete against each other in distances ranging from 4km to 20km. Clubs are allocated to regions where they can compete and host their own event, with the aim of qualifying for the Hasler Final at the end of the season.
Paddlers competing in the Hasler Series are allocated divisions depending on their ability and speed. The division you are allocated also depends on the distance you will paddle within the race. Depending on your results, you could be promoted or offered a demotion through the divisions.
These are the following divisions within the series:
- Division 1, 2, 3 singles or Division 2 or 3 doubles: roughly 20km, which may include portages and/or weir shoots
- Division 4, 5, 6 singles or doubles: roughly 13km, which may include portages and/or weir shoots
- Division 7, 8, 9 singles or doubles: roughly 6.5km
At the end of the season, all the clubs that have earned enough points within each regions qualify to compete in the Hasler Final. Normally hosted at the end of September, the Hasler Final is essentially the â€śNational Team League Championshipsâ€ť where the Hasler Trophy is the ultimate prize for the club scoring the most points.
