The Colorado Group was formed from an idea born in the Grand Canyon. Several of the owners of the business were keen canoeists in their youth and so when the opportunity arose to help the development of Scottish canoe slalom’s youth, we were delighted to be of help.
Colorado worked with Sport Scotland and the local clubs to develop a centre of excellence in Alva, Stirlingshire. We continue to support the centre and provide on-going support to up and coming youth athletes in Scotland.
Colorado Group sponsor Scottish and British youth team members, assisting them in their goal in following in the footsteps of British Olympians such as David Florence and Campbell Walsh. For example, Colorado Sponsored youth athlete, Eilidh Gibson, who helped GB win a team bronze medal at the Under-23 World Championships in Wausau, Wisconsin. Eilidh is the current Scottish Champion.
