Age restrictions: ages 9-18 years old.

If you have been canoeing before, Starter Sessions are also a great opportunity to find out what the local club or centre has to offer. Perhaps it has been a while since you were last on the water or maybe you want to share your passion, and introduce family and friends to the sport?

Whatever your motivation, Starter Sessions will provide an ideal opportunity to get out on the water and try canoeing.
