Welcome to Stafford & Stone Canoe Club

We are a friendly, volunteer led club for competitive canoe slalom. The club has been getting local children and adults on the water since 1973, taking them from absolute beginner to Olympic Gold Medalist and every stage in between.
Since the club started we have been producing some of the sport’s top canoe slalom paddlers who have represented Stafford and Stone across the UK and the World, gaining the club a reputation for excellence. This has allowed us to build our fantastic facility on the banks of the River Trent and build a passionate and dedicated team of volunteer coaches and helpers.

Coronavirus COVID-19

Due to the current ongoing crisis Stafford & Stone Canoe Club has suspended all activities. The clubhouse has been closed for over a week now and we have not been training. We are now following the current advice from British Canoeing. We will be postponing our “Taster Days” but hope to reschedule them for later in the year. Please watch this space.

We as a club would like to extend our warmest regards to you and your families. Please stay safe, stay in, we can all get through this and will see you on the water soon.

2020 Taster Days

We will once again be holding our junior taster days, this year on Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd May. Come along and give Canoe Slalom a go. In addition to this we are running two Adult Canoeing courses, these six weeks courses start on 29th April and a second course starting in July. For more information click on the image below.
