Part of our Club’s primary objective is to promote canoeing. In order to achieve this we always need coaches and river leaders.

Have you been a club member for at least 2 years? Are you able to commit time to the club as a coach or leader? Have you got the required skills and qualifications ? If so the club can make funding available to support your training to become a coach or leader. Speak to Ian Holmes or any committee member
