Classes for beginners start 1st November 2018


So you want to get started? Every Autumn we run classes for newcomers to the sport.

Classes are for adults and academy age teenagers.

And run every Thursday 7-8pm. in Banff Swimming Pool. PLEASE ARRIVE AT THE POOL SIDE CHANGED AND READY AT 7pm.

Our first session in 2018 is a come and try night on 6th September. An 8 week block of lessons will start on 1st November and run until 20th December.

We need to cover the cost of pool hire, but the tuition is free. £48 for the 8 week block, paid in advance. Cheques payable to Deveron Canoe Club.

A further block of lessons starts in January and will run until the end of March 2018. More details nearer the time.

You need to join the club - its £20 per year for adults. Members receive regular emails about our activities and the canoeing trips we run. Our programmes are listed on our website, but advertised trips do change as weather conditions dictate.

For the lessons, you just need swim wear. People often like to wear a shirt or rash vest over the top for modesty reasons, but its not essential.

We provide the kayaks and equipment.

Each lesson will introduce a new skill or element, and gradually this will lead to being competent to paddle on outdoor trips we run. Outdoor trips begin in April, after Easter.

We intend your lessons to be fun, sociable and wet!!!
