Looking to develop your skills and have loads of fun along the way?

Our popular TWS Paddle Club is 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 which can be completed in Sit On Top Kayaks, Canoes or SUP - the choice is yours!

Within the sessions there is the opportunity to develop new paddling skills through games and challenges or through more formal consolidation of skills; our coaches will work along side you to help you achieve your goals and aspirations whatever they might be!  

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! 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!  

There are several different levels to the Paddle Awards:

Paddle Start Award
This level can often be achieved after your first one or two sessions.

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.
