Learn to Paddle offers an introduction to most facets of paddling including both recreational and racing boats. Our instructors are experienced and will provide a fun, learning environment. On completion, paddlers will be ready for a weekend of canoeing with the family or continue the canoe club fun in another 2-week L2P or with the Sprint Team. 

Cancellations: Weather may force paddlers off the water. In 2021 we may not have access inside the building for alternate activities. Therefore in the case of extreme cold, electrical storms etc cancellations may occur. Staff will be watching the weather and where possible will we provide 24 hours notice.  

Activities include:

  • Water safety skills & awareness
  • Skill development (canoes & kayaks)
  • Introduction to racing boats 
  • Dryland and onwater games

    Our goal is that participants will develop:
  • Confidence on the water 
  • Teamwork skills
  • and learning to manage a little adversity as we realize the activities can be challenging for new paddlers.

  • Paddlers will take part in On-Water and On-Land activities. Note there is NO swimming allowed in the reservoir and they MUST be comfortable in water wearing a PFD. Participants need to be able to lift a recreational kayak with a partner. 

    For more information please contact us.
