HERTS CANOE CLUB
What We Offer
Whether you're a total beginner or more experienced, or if you're training for a sporting event, this page details what Herts Canoe Club has to offer.
If this is your first time in a kayak or canoe then the initial sessions will be based around how to keep safe in your boat and getting it moving to where you want it to go on flat water.
Once you have gained the skills needed you will be introduced to more difficult techniques which will enable you to go onto the weirs in the local vicinity under the guidance of your coach. This will give you your first taster of white water and the fun that can be had.
If you have previous experience and may be a bit rusty we will look at your ability and previous experience and fit you into a group that suits your needs and aspirations.
Perhaps you're training for a triathlon, race, or another sporting event? We can do specifically tailored courses for 2-3 people. If you have an event coming up, please get in touch, we will always try to put together a course to suit.
Coaching at the club is under the guidance of the National Governing Body (Canoe England). Nationally recognised qualifications are delivered and assessed by Coaches at the club.
The main aim of the coaching is however to make you a better paddler and have fun rather than concentrating solely on the qualifications.
