Started in 1983 by a group of local parents, Our mission is to provide opportunities for the personal development of young people and their families in the local community through participation in a range of water-based activities. We aim to be a positive force for changing lives in a safe and supportive environment. Open Access Youth Club is open after-school, Saturdays and every day during school holidays, providing watersports to all 9-18 year olds. We run 2 after-school Clubs for young people with disabilities and have support staff on session to enable young people to take part fully. We also have a weekly Adult Canoe Club, a training scheme to help 16-19 year olds to become Coaches and we run sessions for schools, youth, community and welfare groups. We mainly paddle on the canal, but get away to moving water as much as possible, including trips to the Thames, Lea Valley, Wales, Scotland, Slovenia and more! We also run Coaching courses, including Aquatic First Aid, FSRT, Paddlesport Instructor, Core Coach Training and Sheltered Water Canoe & Kayak DST. Please contact us for more details.
