Beginners Course - River Aire   iCal entry for this event

Hi All 

** Please note our waiting list is currently closed while we work through our backlog. Our list will re-open again later on this year. I the meantime, if you are brand new to kayaking, please look at our beginner courses in the pool, or if you have some prior experience, ask us about joining us straight onto a regular session or sunday trip ***

This course is a great introduction to kayaking. New members with little or no experience can choose to start with the club by attending this course, and we also recommend new members who attended the introductory pool sessions attend this course as soon as possible afterwards. The session is also open to any other member who wishes to go over the basic skills again.

NOTE - You must be a paid up member to attend this course. If you are brand new to the club and are starting with us by attending this course, please purchase your membership at the same time as signing up for this course. Your membership helps us to cover the cost of the course. This means that for £35 for an individual or £45 for a family, you get 4x 2h coached sessions.


The course will run for 4 weeks, and take place every Saturday at the clubhouse from 10:00 - 12:00
And like most club river sessions, we will also head to the pub afterwards :-)

The course will cover all the skills to make you confident on flat water, and introduce the basic skills to progress onto moving water. We will also aim to undertake a short river trip starting and finishing at the clubhouse, to put those skills into practice.

All paddling kit will be provided. All you have to provide is suitable clothing. See the beginners kit list for more information.

If you wish to attend, please sign up below. If possible, please make sure you can attend all of the sessions, but you must be able to make the first two sessions, plus a least week 3 or week 4.

If the sessions are full, please sign up to the "Waiting List" option. If places come available, we will offer places to people on the waiting list in the order in which they were added to the list

Any questions, please post on our Facebook group
