Training

Novice Kayak Group

Coach - Barry Coleman

This group is for all paddlers new to the sport, Currently, we have a waitlist for all new paddlers. When space in squads becomes available paddlers will be contacted to trial the sport for a period before committing to membership. This group generally competes at our three major regattas in the sprint season, (summer), and a range of events in the winter 10km series. The club has limited kayaks available for this group so we are constrained by numbers.
There are no coaching fees and is a group suitable for younger paddlers (13/14-year-olds), or paddlers who have little or no kayak or surf ski experience.
