Introductory Level 1 Kayak or Open Canoe Course   iCal entry for this event

The Introductory Level 1 Kayak or Canoe Course is the minimum requirement for entry to the Club (or old 1 Star). This teaches the foundation strokes used in kayaking or canoeing and is a basic introduction to the sport. The first session starts at 10:00am and finishes at 4:00pm. The second session is a river trip which is normally run on the Grand Union Canal at Harefield and we meet at the club house at 10:00am and return around 5:30pm.

We ask that you attend both sessions of the course to avoid affecting the group’s and your own progress. If you don’t manage to reach the standard required during the two days we will offer further coaching to ensure you reach the required level. 

The course meets or exceeds the requirements of the British Canoeing Paddle Discover Award. For more details on the Paddle Discover Award click HERE and then click on the appropriate award to download.
