Back to white water paddling sessions

We are keen to help and encourage members get back paddling after a summer where many haven’t been on the water due to the pandemic and our inability to run club sessions.

This session is aimed at those that have previously done a club beginners course and been on the white water, but have not paddled this year due to Covid restrictions, but want to paddle on the white water with a coaches support.

Club equipment can be used on session – book this when you book your place, and follow the club procedures for cleaning and isolating equipment after the session (details).

The plan is to refresh paddling skills, build confidence, and look at staying safe on the water to ensure paddlers feel confident to join in other club sessions and trips, or paddle independently with peers. Each session will be based around the needs of those in the group.

The sessions are:

  • Sat 12th Sept – 9:45 – 12:00
  • Sat 19th Sept – 9:45 – 12:00

If the session is full you can book on the waiting list in case anyone drops out.

Attendance on each sessions must be pre-booked in advance for each paddler via our Webcollect system.
