Training

We offer training by qualified coaches and experienced paddlers to take anyone from first timer to competent paddler and improve their paddling in a time scale that suits.  

For our younger paddlers we can take you through the British Canoeing Paddlepower awards to aid you through the paddle strokes. We can train and assess you for Canoe England star awards too. In the winter season we train at Fearnville Leisure Centre swimming pool so that rescues and capsize drills can be practiced in warm safety. Moving to Roundhay Park and local rivers longer paddling distances can be achieved and the star tests assessed. Informal and friendly coaching is key to our training methods for all. If you require specific training we can recommend centres if we cannot provide it ourselves. 

Our polo section can help hone your canoe polo skills too if you are a team player and want to be part of our active and successful polo teams.
