Kids Starter Award

If you are looking for a course for children under 14, our Paddle Start Award courses have now finished for 2021. If you are want your child to join our Kids Club , this is now full and we are not accepting new members for 2021.


The Kids Starter Award is the basic introduction to paddling which we offer to 8-14 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.
