Organiser's Description

You are signing up for Forth Canoe Club's Junior sessions for the Autumn term 2019


Your sessions are Sunday 2.30-4pm, this is a GENERAL session 

These sessions will start Sunday 7th September and will end on 13th October. This is a 6 week course at a cost of £36.


What we will provide

YEAR 1 PADDLER COURSES are designed for children who have paddled with us at our summer courses. We will aim to progress the learning using a range of boats and will use the Paddlepower awards to monitor your child's progression. These sessions are aimed at building on what your child has already learned and deepening their skills while at the same time ensuring they have a fun and enjoyable experience.

YEAR 2+ PADDLER COURSES  are aimed at children who have already paddled with us for two or more of our term sessions. For these children we will aim to progress their learning through a range of craft and will start to introduce them to paddling away from the canal.

Again, will use the Paddlepower awards to monitor your child's progression. We are keen that our young paddlers continue to have fun as they develop their skills and so games will continue to be a big part of the learning experience.

What is the cost?

Each term costs £36 (ie £6 a session).


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.
