Kayaking and Canoeing Improvers course 2017 (and D of E training) 26 April – 31 May

“Go Canoeing” Kayaking and Canoeing Improvers course 2017 Wednesday evenings 26th April – 31st May (inc)

So, you’ve been Kayaking/Canoeing, maybe you’ve completed our beginner course last year?

This is where it all starts again. We’ll start you off with a bit of a gentle refresher on some of the strokes you’ve done before, just to get you going.

Then what? well, the choices are endless;

You can carry on where you left off from a previous course and begin work on the BCU 2 star award.

You can work on switching your skills to a greater level between Kayak to Canoe (or the other way round).

You can start working on expedition practice and training for Scouting challenge or awards badges or Duke of Edinburgh’s awards.

Try a completely different Canoeing/Kayaking discipline – anything from Canoe Sailing to Kayak slalom or racing.

The choice is yours, our job is to lay those foundations and give you the opportunity to have a go and develop from where you are now.

KSCC Consent_Form

Thanks for signing up to the Kingston Scouts Canoe Club Fun session for Cubs, please see below for a parental consent form which we will need from the start to keep on record. The swimming section should not rule out those who cannot swim 50m – it is simply so that the coaches and I can keep a slightly closer eye on those who may be weaker swimmers (buoyancy aids are provided for all).

The Session is 9.30 – 12.30 on Sunday 21st June.
Cost is £3/head/session.
There are some details of what to wear, etc here; http://kingstonscoutscc.org.uk/?page_id=685

It would also be prudent to have a quick read of some background info on Weils Disease, please note though that this is very rare and it’s more about promoting normal precautions such as covering cuts with a plaster and having a shower after canoeing; http://kingstonscoutscc.org.uk/?page_id=626

Can I also take this opportunity to mention that if your child wears glasses AND needs to wear them whilst canoeing then please do think about a glasses retainer

I hope that all this information helps, do feel free to contact me if you have any queries at all.

There are many reasons why people have made kayaking the fastest growing sport. Outdoor enjoyment, healthy exercise, connecting with friends, solitude, fishing, challenge, adventure, a peaceful escape or just plain old FUN! – what’s your reason?

In the many years that Kingston Scouts Canoe Club have been running, we have enjoyed helping others get a good start. We always encourage them to learn a few of the important basics – you know, the “kayaking for beginners” stuff … before hitting the water. Why? Because you don’t want to learn them after hitting the water. Really!

This Course starts off with a full Safety brief, a detailed explaination on what to do ‘if’ you do go over and just a gentle warm up to get us in the mood.

We will be following the BCU (British Canoe Union) one star award aiming to complete all aspects of this training to give scouts taking part a good grounding in canoeing and paddlesports

DoE Expedition Skills training

DoE Expedition Skills training for Explorer Scouts

This will be working towards the BCU 2 star award to ensure that you have the necessary training and skills to be able to cope, as a group, with the paddling required when on an expedition in Canoes.
