If you are looking for a fun way to learn to paddle then you need a Start, Discover, or Explore course. You can locate course providers near you using our look up below.

If you are a beginner try for your Start Award. After this take it further by gaining your Discover Award. Then, if you want to start to get serious about your paddling gain your Explore Award.

There are a range of course providers across the UK offering courses to help you gain these and other Awards. Some are small independent providers, while others are larger centres.

Look out for the British Canoeing Delivery Partner logo against a provider’s name. These are organisations we work with to ensure best practice is followed in course delivery. All clubs listed will be British Canoeing affiliated.
