Paddle Boarding Summer Evening Courses 2022

Adventure Dolphin offers a number of different water based evening courses in canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddle boarding; helping you to work towards the nationally recognised British Canoeing paddle awards.

Detailed information regarding these awards can be found by visiting the British Canoeing website.

Please note: A prerequisite for all courses is that participants must be aged 10 years and above and must be over 1.3m tall.  For minors under the age of 12, parents or another appointed adult are required to be present at the centre or the riverbank. It is preferable that all participants can swim. We aim to improve water confidence as part of our programme, but ask that you inform your coach if you have concerns.

“The Paddle Awards

The key skills required to develop your paddling will not have changed. The Paddle Awards will be aimed at those who are new to paddling and will aim towards enjoyment, safety and the development of fundamental skills.

As a participant you will:

  • Be taught by an experienced, qualified coach
  • Have the use of the Dolphin Centre’s facilities during your sessions (use of changing rooms and showers)
  • Have the use of centre equipment

Temporary Club Membership (valid for two sessions)

Anyone who participants on a course is given Temporary Club Membership. This entitles you to join our informal Sunday mornings or Tuesday evening club sessions. If you do not wish to become a member after the two week period but want to attend sessions, you will be charged as a visitor thereafter for a maximum of five visits.
