Training timetable

These are the sessions we run on a weekly basis, but additional activities will run during school holidays.

Junior sessions always have a Club Coach present and a training plan that is set – all participants must follow the set training plan.  Juniors are invited to attend only after having completed the 4-week Introduction to Paddlesport course.

Adults can choose whether to join in with the sessions or not, but before attending must have had a competency assessment with one of our coaches. Please contact us to arrange this.
