Latest introduction to Paddle Sport course is coming up. The course covers the basics skills of canoeing, kayaking and SUP along with safety training and some exploring of the Avon around Pershore.
This course is aimed at families and seniors with some paddling experience who would like to take their paddling further. Content will be based loosely around the two star syllabus. Alex has some great Junior sessions at PRSC so we are not specifically covering this here. Cost of the course is a full Club membership to encourage participants to paddle with the club over the Summer. If current Club member wish to sign up that’s absolutely fine.
Tuesday 10 May, 17 May, 24 May and 07 June. All sessions are at PRSC from 19:00 hrs to 20:30 hrs.
Please let me know if you would like to join the course or help with the coaching.
