This is already an approved tag.

The disciplines

There is a large variety of canoing disciplines, see e.g. [1]. For mapping purposes, it might be useful to distinguish (at least) among the basic ones, as in the following table.

canoe:type flatwater sprint/marathon on flatwater, see [2]  
canoe:type polo canoe polo, see [3]  
canoe:type rodeo playboating/rodeo, see [4]  
canoe:type slalom white water slalom, see [5] Kayak-slalom.svg
canoe:type river_running (whitewater) river descent, rather leisure activity, see [6] (TODO: Relate to WikiProject Whitewater Maps)

The services
