Type: White Water Session

Description:  We have chosen a variety of venues targeted at differing levels, so both entry level and advanced level can join in. At the sessions you can opt for coaching to learn the basics for learning how to manoeuvre a craft in moving water and progressively build up to more advanced skills.

Location/Venue(s): Varied, we shall be rotating our fortnightly sessions between the following three types.

  • Nene(morning 10am-1pm) – The Nene is great beginners who have just done a few taster sessions and was one of the UK’s first pumped artificial white water course, they don’t provide additional throw line safety cover so the club is required to provide its own.
  • Lee Valley (Typically aim for any sessions after midday) – The site was built for the Olympics and great for progressive paddlers and intermediates offering two different levels of course and safety cover is provided. You are however required to book and complete an assessment if its your first time, so if you are interested in these sessions make sure you book to get your assessment in early for the date we are next there
  • Weir (1:30pm-4:30pm) – An opportunity to explore local weirs, we shall choose the locations based on water levels and the abilities of those signed up

Both the Nene and Lee Valley are man-made course, so you require to book and pay for your session with those venues directly to secure your slot and then afterwards can book on with us.

Kit/Equipment Hire: Equipment is always available for use at official club activities however there is no equipment stored onsite for these events, so if you require to equipment please complete a hire request. We highly recommend where possible that you are able to transport your own kit, however understand not everyone has a van or roof rack especially those new to the sport, if this is the case ensure you fill in your request soon as possible. Equipment should be collected at the Wednesday Mixed/Open (pool, lido, canal) Session before the event and returned the following Wednesday after.
