We have all the equipment that you need, and we cater for all levels. All you need to bring is what you would normally wear in the swimming pool.
If you just want to come along and try out canoeing or if you need to practise skills you already know. We should be able to cater for your needs. Pool sessions are unstructured practice time but there will always be a Coach on hand if you need some help. We cater for all abilities, so if you have never canoed before then pop along and give it a go.
If you'd prefer to use you own equipment you can bring this along. Please make sure your boat is clean. We charge £1 for you to bring your boat in.
The Pool Sessions run for most of the year, but we are closed on Bank Holiday weekends and throughout August.

Bi-monthly coaches meeting
Club camping trip on the shore of lake Bala.
A great camping venue with good facilities and good access to a large lake. The tryweryn white water centre and river Dee are only a few minutes up the road. Being in the middle of North Wales there's also an almost endless list of options for outdoor activities nearby.
There will be 2* coaching sessions on the lake for those on the course starting in July, with a focus on open canoes. There may be opportunities for others to use the club canoes when they're not being used for this. If you would like to do so please let me know well in advance so I can plan accordingly.
Other coaching sessions and led trips may be arranged. These will be listed for sign up separately.
You will need to book and pay for camping directly with the campsite. There is also a charge for paddling on the lake. This is payable to the park ranger on the day. I will add further information on this soon.
Further information will be added here, and emailed to signed up participants as plans progress.
