Summer Coached sessions

We have the following 8 week blocks of coached sessions running at the club in Sowerby Bridge. These start in w/c 25th April (final week being w/c 13th June).

  • Adult ‘Learn to Paddle’ Course
  • Adults Intermediate Course
  • Adult ‘Learn to Paddle’ Course
  • Junior Intermediates Course
Additionally we have the following sessions that can be booked each week:
  • Slalom training – a coached session for those that are or will be racing regularly in canoe slalom events.
  • Club Wednesdays – a peer paddling session for those that are competent on the water (usually paddling on the white water at the club). This is not a coached session, but we have coaches on hand to support the session to and help anyone that needs a bit of support. 

Want to paddle but don’t know how?

You should take our ‘Learn To Paddle’ Course – these runs for 8 weeks. These are on Mondays and Thursdays and start in week commencing 25th April.

We aim to have futher courses in June as well, including a course for younger paddlers when the weather is warmer. We’ll release dates nearer the time.

Already know how to paddle and want to refine your skills?

Take our Intermediates course.
