About this Event
Course Description and Enrolment Details

Kids Intermediate Summer School allows your child to progress in a range of skills across a range of paddle sport craft. The specifics will be tailored to the group and expertise of the coaches. These courses are for kids who have some experience of paddling and can enter and exit a kayak without the assistance of an adult and can put on a buoyancy aid with the support of a peer.

The course fee includes a year's membership of Forth Canoe Club valid through the club year ending 28 February 2025. Once your child has attended their course and shown that they can capsize and re-enter their craft safely, they are welcome to participate, under supervision of a parent/guardian, in our club night activities the 1st Thursday of each month.

Course times

The course has 5 daily sessions on consecutive days from Monday 1st July to Friday 5th July. Each session is 2 hours from 1:00pm-3:00pm.

We're happy to make changes to your booking. But please do check that you will be available before booking :-)

Location

All courses will run from our boathouse, situated on the bank of the Union Canal at the southern end of Harrison Road.

The nearest Postcode is Polwarth Church - EH11 1LU.

What you should bring with you:

We ask that you bring a bottle of water and a snack. In addition you will need suitable clothing for kayaking (this is weather dependent, but could include a fleece, warm t-shirt/thermal, tracksuit trousers, cagoule/windproof, hat and towel). We encourage you to wear footwear in the boats; plimsolls or wet-shoes are ideal. There are changing rooms and a toilet available during this time.

Contact details

If you have a question about this course, please contact Alan, at [email protected], who will direct your query to the appropriate coach if necessary. Coaches and co-ordinators are volunteers, so do take the time to look through the information to hand to ensure that your question is not answered elsewhere.

Why do I have to fill in all these forms?

We appreciate it takes time to complete the forms but we have a requirement to provide our coaches with up to date information about the students they will be coaching - their needs, medical issues and emergency details - please work with us to give our coaches the information they need.
