jnrPaddlePlus is a family friendly club that welcomes new junior members. Many of our previous junior paddlers are now adult members and coaches, some have gone on to compete in National Competition Squads, but more importantly, they all still enjoy their time on the water.

Throughout the summer from Easter to mid October a junior group meets from
 6pm - 7.30pm on Thursdays. Run by experienced coaches from the club, this offers youngsters (from 7 upwards) a chance to try paddlesport. The sessions are based around the BCU paddlepower scheme which offers a fun and enjoyable way to learn key kayak and canoe skills.
The group also organise longer paddles at weekends and bank holidays. These include the touring and camping "Summer Solstice Paddle" as well as training and participation in the 100 mile challenge, which takes place over the late May bank holiday.

Swimming pool sessions are often available through the winter which are suitable for juniors to join.
