We arrange initial starter sessions for beginners to canoeing. Separate sessions are arranged for adults (usually Saturdays) and juniors (usually weekday evenings) to coincide with coaches availability.
If you are returning to canoeing after a break and would like to join the club an initial check of any qualifications you may hold and evaluation of competency is conducted before introducing you to the correct area of the club.
