SUNDAY PADDLE CLUBS
Looking to develop your skills and have loads of fun along the way?
Our popular Sunday Paddle Clubs are a great way of further developing your paddling skills and confidence through games and challenges. Suitable for all ages from 8 years old and upwards, each week our highly qualified staff will teach you lots of new skills along the way whilst having fun. We use the British Canoeing Paddle Awards as a framework for these sessions. NEW for 2019 sessions can be completed in Sit On Top Kayaks, Canoes or SUP - the choice is yours!
On every Sunday from April to October we operate two clubs which are as follows:
09:30-11:00: Beginner Paddle Club - aimed at 8ish years old and above who are new to the sport who would like to have fun and learn new skills along the way.
09:30-11:00: Improver Paddle Club - aimed at juniors and adults alike who are at Discover Award standard or above who want to consolidate skills and work towards their next award in a fun environment.
You can work your way through the different levels one after the other, or start at the level you or your coach feel suits you best. Either way, you get a certificate when you’ve finished the course. Once you reach a certain standard in our beginners club you can move into the next club to further develop your skills.
During each award you will get to learn a variety of canoeing, kayaking and paddleboarding skills and challenges and improve your knowledge – all in a fun and flexible way, and in different types of craft!
There are several different levels:
Paddle Start Award
This level can often be achieved after your first one or two sessions on our Beginner Paddle Club.
Paddle Discover Award
Gradually moving you on from your initial taste of the sport, through various skills and knowledge, giving you a really good base from which you could choose to set off onto the next level. This level can often be achieved after 6 - 8 sessions.
Paddle Explore Award
Focusing on developing your technique, skills and knowledge further, all in a fun and flexible way. This level can often be achieved after 12-14 sessions
Price: £10.00 per person per session, inclusive of your boat/board, paddle, wetsuit/cagoule, buoyancy aid and launch.
