Event Summary

Cherwell Canoe Club runs novice courses every summer in Banbury. These take place at Woodgreen Leisure Centre, Banbury's outdoor pool on Wednesday evenings from 7pm - 8pm.

There will be 3 courses of 5 weeks each, running from May through to August. Places are limited so book early to avoid disappointment. Course starting dates - 8th May, 19th June and 31st July.

The novice course is a basic introduction into the sport of canoeing and kayaking with qualified instructors in a safe and controlled environment. All the necessary equipment is provided.

The courses are geared for both adults and children although participants must be over 8 years old, and under 18s must have a parent or guardian's consent. All participants must be able to swim 25 metres. The minimum height for children is 135 cm or 4 ft 5 inches (to fit properly in a boat).

The course covers the basic techniques needed to manoeuvre a kayak on flat water as well as important safety principles and is the basis to developing skills necessary to progress onto whitewater or any of the competitive disciplines.

Each course runs for 5 weeks with an assessment at the end. As part of the course there will also be an opportunity to take part on a river trip on a local river (usually on a Saturday or a Sunday).
