  • Greater safety cover.
  • Coaching support.
  • Paddling with the family is great fun, why restrict it to only school club trips.
  • The potential for trips vastly increases, when we can accomplish shuttle runs with cars/mini-buses.

In return we will give you:

  • A lot of fun
  • The opportunity to explore some of the beautiful water around the SW
  • The opportunity to paddle in our pool sessions throughout the winter 
  • The opportunity to progress up the ladder with your canoeing qualifications, both personal & coaching.
