The club runs beginner courses which are used to introduce those new to the sport, paddling safely and feeling confident. These courses aim to take paddlers to the stage where they are safe enough to paddle independently with other club members.
Juniors typically stay in junior groups and are coached until they reach the stage where they are training at a higher standard with adult training groups. (Juniors are not allowed to paddle alone). Adults however, may, once feeling confident and when deemed safe start to venture out alone or in small groups in good weather.
Paddlers can and have been coached within the club right up to international level and there is a wealth of expertise within the club to achieve this.
The club relies on volunteer coaches but:
‘You don’t have to be an amazing paddler to be a coach!’
