Paddlesport Activity Assistant

The Club is really keen to support our more-experienced members who are leading (or would like to lead) paddles for our newer members.  Organised mostly through the MCC2021 WhatsApp group (and always on the website), these paddles have been the mainstay in keeping our newer members on the water throughout lockdown.

Jacob & Lee have been working to put together a special Maidstone Canoe Club program to recognise these paddlers whohave been organising trips.  The new British Canoeing Paddlesport Activity Assistant qualification is the ideal way to do this.  It's a Club-specific program which takes into account all your existing experience, but also offers full training and support to less-confident aspiring paddle leaders.  The aim is that in future, all of these trips will be led by a qualified PAA (or other river leader / coach).  To this end, Jacob & Lee are going to run some sessions supporting this - to help them get organised, please register your interest using this questionnaire.  Thanks!
