Introductory Course - Armley Pool   iCal entry for this event

For all of our new members who have very limited or no previous kayaking experience, we recommend that you start out by undertaking our introductory course.

The course lasts for 3 weeks (1 session per week) and you can choose to attend this course at the swimming pool at Armley Leisure Centre on Wednesday evenings, or during the lighter months (April - September) down on the River Aire in Kirkstall on Thursday evenings.

We run the course over 3 weeks (1 session per week). Ideally you will attend all 3 weeks, but we can squeeze what you need to know into 2 weeks, so when choosing a course date to book onto, please make sure you can attend at least 2 of the 3 sessions in that course.

Over the sessions you will be taught the basics of kayaking, including forwards and backwards paddling, sweep strokes, moving sideways, edging, and brace strokes. There will also be some fun rescue scenarios.

This page is for booking on the swimming pool based course.

Each session takes place on a Wednesday night at the swimming pool in Armley Leisure Centre. Each sessions costs £10 per adult and £7 per child (under 18). The money will be taken at the door when you arrive for your sessions. You should bring with you your normal swimwear, but we also recommend to wear a t-shirt over the top. Try to bring a t-shirt made of a man-made fibre is possible (try to avoid cotton)
