School Canoe clubs
School canoe clubs are a great way of getting young paddlers out onto the water.
Canoe Wales encourages the setting up of school canoe clubs
and actively supports their existence with help in coaching progression for
adults, purchase of kit at very favourable rates (exclusive to Canoe Wales
affiliated school clubs), specific
school star awards which are relevant to GCSE s, and school competitions such
as regattas, slalom races and white water races. At the time of writing we are
also developing school canoe polo competitions.
We are actively involved in Gemau Cymru, which is a Welsh
School Mini Olympics competition incorporating slalom racing and sprint racing , the two Olympic disciplines in
Affiliation to Canoe Wales costs £100 per year, includes two
adult memberships worth £70 ,and access to the above support and competitions.
