Adult Canoeing Courses

We taster sessions followed by courses for adults before they join the club. Please email book onto these sessions and to be kept informed when they will be.

Taster Sessions take place at Stafford and Stone Canoe Club on the River Trent in Westbridge Park, Stone.

Qualified coaches supported by other club members will run the sessions. Please wear some close fitting warm clothing (or a wetsuit if you have one) and some old trainers. Shorts and tee-shirt are not sufficient, and jeans are no good. In case you get wet you should also bring a complete change of clothes and a towel. Changing rooms, showers and toilet facilities are available in the clubhouse.

Boat, paddles, buoyancy aid, helmet and a canoeing cagoule will be provided.

River water is not as clean as drinking or swimming pool water. All participants should shower following the session, either at the club or at home. It is particularly important that at least face and hands are washed before eating or drinking.

Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis.

Once you have completed the course you will be able to join the adult sessions and take you paddling to the next level.
