We do not charge for our coaches’ time when they volunteer to run courses for our members. We try to put on several in-house courses each year to cater to our member’s needs. We have introduced a £5 booking fee to ensure that members confirm their place and that the course takes place. Use of club equipment is free with courses that take place in the docks or at any of our pools.

Occassionally coaches from outside the club run discounted courses for our club members. These are usually of a more advanced level where members are expected to have their own equipment. Club equipment can be hired for these courses if required. New Members with little experience are advised to take an introductory course to get the confidence to join in with club activities. Over the winter months it is best to attend a pool session where you will be given a safe and warm introduction to paddling.

Please give us your feedback
If you have recently taken a course with us please give us feedback on how well we have done. It takes less than a minute Click here for online form……….

A number of Local Coaches have run more advanced courses for us
