Experienced club members are happy to give up their time to coach novice paddlers, we were all there once! We do this because we want to promote the many benefits of the sport to others. Historically our coaching has always been on a very informal basis, however we do have several coaches that are qualified to current Canoe England Standards, which does give the opportunity for members to achieve some formal canoeing qualifications if they so wish. Please ask if there is something in particular that you want to do, and if we can’t do it ‘in house’ then we most likely know a ‘man that can’.

Our beginners sessions run from April, every other Tuesday during the summer until September. We don`t run beginner trips during the winter.

During the colder months you will need your own personal warm gear to paddle on the rivers.
