Wednesday evening training sessions for under-18s, starting 14 April

Based on the interest expressed in our survey, we’re pleased to confirm that we are intending to go ahead with a block of 3 training sessions for existing paddlers aged under-18, starting next Wednesday 14th April:

  • We’re currently expecting to be joined by Alex, Edith, Griff, Jim and Rhiannon – and possibly Ruan.
  • Cost £10 per session, preferably paid £30 at once for all three sessions – we’ll collect this by Direct Debit through our membership system.
  • Please confirm your place(s) by ‘RSVP’ on our online event listing – or e-mail if you have any questions.
  • All existing Club members must also have up-to-date membership of both the Club and Canoe Wales – we’ll send separate reminders for those of you who need these! Any new members will need to register with us but don’t need to join formally for this first block of sessions.
  • Meet at Brecon Promenade (the Upper Car Park, by the toilet block) at 6.30pm; we’ll be finished by 9pm.
  • Parents or other household members must be available at the start and end of the session to help youngsters with kit and to carry boats; and throughout the session in case they need to get off the water early – but must avoid gathering together and must remain socially-distanced from everyone other than their own children.
  • Feel free to bring your own boats and paddles if you have them, otherwise we’ll have the usual selection of club equipment available.
  • Please be prepared for the weather and water conditions – wear a wetsuit or layers of synthetic material (e.g. fleece) – we can provide cagoules – and shoes that you don’t mind getting wet (neoprene beach shoes or gym shoes / daps are ideal); and bring a towel and full set of clothes for the end of the session.
  • Changing will be in the car park; and we aren’t able to confirm whether the toilet block will be open (20p entry if it is!).
  • We will be following additional procedures to prevent the transmission of Covid, as set out in the attached document, and will expect everyone to comply with instructions from coaches. Please be aware that this might slow-down our usual processes for issuing and returning kit; and will limit the types of coaching and games we are able to offer.
