We also recognise the fact that the younger paddler should also be encouraged in a professional and structured system so we also are able to provide the paddlepower passport courses to the under 14's.

As a club we also encourage our members to take part in the cross stream challenge programme which aims to develop and challenge boat handling skills, develop strokes and moves, whilst blending slalom, freestyle, polo with a touch of wild water and flat water racing, and maybe a bit of surf too. The cross stream challenge has been designed around the BC long term paddler development program offering something for everyone.
