Beginner Course - CANOE - Session 1 & 2

Download as iCal file  
Sunday 19 June 2022, 09:00 - 13:00
This repeat is an exception to the normal repeat pattern

The Canadian canoe is a graceful craft, perfect for camping, family trips, or exploring local rivers.  Our specialist canoe coaches will give you the skills you need to be confidently paddling your own craft.  You'll be working with a partner - tandem - and will swap positions so you both practice techniques of a bow paddler and stern paddler.  Once you've completed the course, you'll have the confidence and abilities to join us on our trips, tours and regular paddles on the Medway and beyond.

Please note all courses must be pre-booked - all novice paddlers must attend one of our beginner courses.  Full details of the courses and how to get involved in paddling (including how to join the Club if you're already an experience paddler) are available on this page - please take a look if you haven't already.

Our courses cost £65 for adults and £45 for children, and are run by our friendly qualified coaches.  They consist of 8 hours coaching time - either 4 x two-hour sessions, 2 x four-hour sessions, or occasionally 1 x eight-hour session- and follow the syllabus for the nationally-recognised British Canoeing Discover Award.

Your coaches for this course will be Jacob Baisley and Martin Hall. It is suitable for ages 14+.  The dates for this course are:

Session 1 & 2: Sunday 19th June

Session 3 & 4: Sunday 26th June
