Location/Venue: Weir (1pm-4pm) – We shall use a variety of locations providing an opportunity to explore local weirs (approx. 30-60mins travel time from Aldershot). As the locations shall also be based on water levels, conditions and the abilities of those signed up, we shall only confirm the final location shortly after the bookings close.


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
