Kids Starter Award

Paddle Start Award course dates for 2022 are now available to view on the Calendar of this website. Booking will be available in April

The Kids Starter Award is the basic introduction to paddling which we offer to 8-13 year olds.  

It lasts 3 hours in which we will play games, introduce the different types of boats and get you going in a (roughly) straight line.  

Course dates (from May till Sept) can be found in the club calendar.  Booking will be available through Webcolllect (found under Members or via the courses section) approximately 2 weeks before the start date, or once sufficient coaches have volunteered.

Please ensure that you wear lightweight thermal clothing or wetsuits and lightweight shoes (preferably slip-on). All other equipment is provided.

All participants must feel confident in the water when fully clothed and wearing a buoyancy aid.

Please note refunds are only given if we are able to resell your place via our system. In such cases, you will be subjected to an administrative fee.

Note: Access to the courses requires a valid club membership which can be obtained when you book the course. If you are booking for more than one family member, check if family membership is better value.
