What we will provide
These sessions are aimed at improving your child's canoeing and kayaking. Our qualified coaches will teach in small groups of 8 so that your child will get lots of opportunity to learn and have fun. Our autumn sessions are a progression from the sessions your child has already attended with us and we will build on what they have already learned and will use a lot of games to ensure the learning remains fun. At the end of the course our aim is to assess your child and will award a certificate marking their level of achievement.
For insurance purposes any paddler who comes to the club more than 3 times MUST become a club member this is why anyone who signs up for any course automatically becomes a member. FCC are not able to provide a discount for the paddlers who are already members.
How to find us
All courses will run from our boathouse, situated on the bank of the Union Canal at the southern end of Harrison Road. The nearest Postcode is Polwarth Church - EH11 1LU.
What your child should bring with them
We ask that children bring a bottle of water and a snack with them. In addition they will need suitable clothing for kayaking (a fleece, warm t-shirt/thermal, tracksuit trousers, cagoule/windproof, hat and towel) and a change of clothes and footwear in case they get wet.
