Wed 21 Jul 2021 Summer Training Evening
July 21 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
During the school holidays we will continue with Wednesday evening sessions, focusing for most of you on working towards the British Canoeing ‘Discover’ and ‘Explore’ Awards, which are an excellent benchmark of your developing skills as a paddler (although the Awards themselves are optional, depending on whether you like to have proof of your achievements!):
- The Discover Award allows you to develop your decision making and practical skills for a fun and safe time on the water, taking you on the next steps towards becoming a proficient and independent paddler (and is well suited to those who paddle with us mainly on Wednesday evenings).
- The Explore Award gives you ownership; allowing you to choose where you move next in the world of paddlesport (and is most suited to those who are able to join us for more than just Wednesday evening sessions).
These Awards can be achieved in kayak, canoe or SUP – and are appropriate for beginners as well as experienced paddlers. Please contact us if you’d like to know more…
For those of you who have previously achieved these awards (or their forerunners), we will aim to offer a mixture of:
- Polo-related skills and physical training sessions (when Jess is available to run these!); and/or
- Foundation Safety & Rescue skills.
Because it’s the holiday period, we shan’t be asking you to block-book sessions but will treat each evening separately – although the more sessions you are able to attend, the more likely you are to achieve an award to recognise your progress!
Please book by Sun 18 July using the RSVP button below or by e-mail to Steve.
