An introductory course in Kayaking or Canoeing – the first step
The Club opens for recreational paddling between 1.00pm to 4.00pm from Sunday 22nd March to 1st November 2020 and runs other activities outside of these dates.
As well as our range of courses, we can offer advice on becoming an instructor or coach. Coaches will also run occasional workshops to teach or improve paddle strokes. From Easter onward, we run a Youth Section session with games, races and training from 2pm and fitness and coaching workshops for adults. Club members are free to attend as many or as few sessions as you wish – there is no need to book, but best to check the calendar that we are operating from the club HQ that day. We operate in most weather conditions, but if the forecast is for high winds or lightning, always check before leaving home by calling the Duty Coach on 07837 585798.
For courses, please arrive early to allow time for changing and getting the kayaks and equipment out. When you arrive at the Club, please book in with Duty Coach. To book on one of the courses, follow the booking instructions for each course. If you need further information before you book, contact us at email@example.com
When you book onto a course, we need to capture certain personal information. We need this so that we can contact you and be aware of any particular needs to run the session or course effectively and safely.
