Junior novice course   iCal entry for this event

Racing Canoeing is a great sport and Richmond Canoe Club is primarily a (flat water) racing club.  We have a number of GB representatives in long-distance racing (known as marathon) and we have an active sprint group (sprint is the flat water racing seen at the Olympics).

 

The junior induction course is designed to introduce young people from 11 -16 to paddlesport with a view to competing in flat water racing; but before we can race we must be safe and this course is the start of that process.

 

Over five sessions participants will paddle both canoes and kayaks using single and double ended paddles (all will become clear).  At the end, they will be ready to move on to the next group and develop their paddling.

 

Throughout the course, we will use the British Canoeing Paddlepower scheme. this rewards progression for young paddlers and we will hope to get participants to level two or three during the induction course.  Further details are here:  https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/courses/paddle-power/

 

Parents must be present for the first session, and ideally all other sessions - we have adult beginner courses too...

Courses for 2019 are entered below. The first two courses are 5 sessions on Sunday to Wednesday and the Friday and the 3rd course is 5 sessions on Monday to Friday. Sessions for the first course start at 3pm. Each session lasts 2 hours.
