Location/Venue: Lee Valley is a man-made course, the site was built for the Olympics and is great for progressive paddlers and intermediates offering two different levels of course with safety cover provided. You are 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 attending if you want to do it on a day that club members will be there. If you have already passed your assessment don’t forget to book and pay for your sessions directly with Lee Valley.


All of our white water sessions use a variety of venues rotating between Local Weirs, Nene White Water Course and Lee Valley White Water Course. These have been chosen to help offer venue locations that will provide something for everyone at differing levels, so both entry level and more advanced paddlers can all be welcome to join in.

The sessions are aimed to support participants to

  • learn the basics of how to manoeuvre a craft in moving water
  • progressively building up necessary skills for more advanced or longer trips
  • practise existing white water river skills
  • practise freestyle skills
