Add to calendar

Participants will be introduced to the sport of canoeing and kayaking in a safe and controlled environment.

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?

You need bring along a swimming costume, trainers or similar that you don't mind getting wet, a towel and t-shirt.

Participants under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

No toilet facilities.
