Youth members (10-23yrs)


What does it involve?

Every session is run under the supervision of qualified coaches. If it is your first time here, you will be given a safety brief and then introduced to the instructor(s) and the equipment. A typical session includes tuition for all levels of ability, some fun and games and a short distance of paddling along the river.

Tuition will follow the British Canoeing personal skills certificates and you'll be able to gain nationally recognised personal skill awards. You should achieve the BC Discover award after approximately 5 evenings.

It is not necessary to come to every evening consecutively. The instructors will teach you from where you left off.


Do I have to book in advance?

If you're not booking in advance, you will still need to REGISTER on this site before arrival.
