Paddle Power Awards

Paddle Power

We are thinking of trying out the new Paddle Power awards with some of our younger members. The awards are aimed at under 14’s as a fun way to build up a sound knowledge of water sports. Most of younger members would already qualify for the first award (Paddle Power Start) so we would probably work towards the second award of Paddle Power Passport. This would take approximately eight one hour sessions which we can run over the summer. Those taking part complete a progress card and when this is full receive a certificate and badge. If you are interested in taking part, know somebody who is or would like to help with the coaching please get in touch with Adam or Paul Haggett.
