Red & Horizons: We have put together a training programme for those interested in developing 3 Star paddlesport & Leadership skills in a variety of craft. Dynamic training sessions will take place on Wednesday evenings. Sessions will focus advanced paddling techniques, rescues and rolling, stamina training, and tasks to produce higher level paddlesport performance. We will be using the River Thames from March/April as well which will develop moving water skills and sea kayak journeying.

For members wishing to take part in the Coach Development programme in 2017, these sessions will provide you with essential experience and pre-requisite qualifications. We will select the final group based on their development within these sessions and trips as well as leadership skills gained.

Trips:  Please check the information on the trips section for the specific trip you are interested in so that you are prepared for that day/week.  Most importantly book and pay for your place in advance we no longer take payment on the day of the trip and therefore you will not be able to attend.

Events: Please see the Events section below for holiday projects, residential and special event dates throughout the year ahead.

Clothing: You must bring an appropriate set of clothes (bottoms & top) for Adventure activities including a base layer, mid layer and waterproof depending on the weather.  The Centre will provide specialist clothing for water based sessions such as water shedding salopettes and cagoule and mid layers and waterproof jackets for trips where possible.
