Juniors on early session only please, unless otherwise agreed.\nTimes:\nFamily Fun Session 7.00 - 7.45pmSkills Session 7.45 - 8.30pm\nImportant - ** If bringing your own boat **\nYour boat MUST be properly washed out by removing the airbags and really hosing it out and cleaning the outside. Any debris that is released into the pool puts our ability to have these sessions at risk. You may be turned away if your boat isn\u0027t adequately cleaned.\nIf your boat is larger than a \u0027normal\u0027 creek boat (roughly 9\u0027 or 2.6m) you will need to purchase 2 places as the pool make us control the space used in the pool by limiting how full it is.\nDetails\nThe perfect opportunity to practice your skills in a nice warm pool. Perfect for practising spray desk tests, support strokes, rolls, wet exits, freestyle tricks or just general strokes.\nThe earlier session will be a family fun session. Juniors, parents and adults welcome. The emphasis is on fun, games and splashing about. Plenty of Noise!The later session is a bit more focused on skills and technique. Really for older juniors, playboaters and adults who want help with specifics or to practice things.\nThis isn\u0027t a hard and fast separation, but we expect participants to be mindful of the aims of the session, coaches will adjust their focus between the sessions.\n \nThere will be at least one coach and helpers in the pool to help teach and offer guidance, it is a space where you can practice, rather than formal coaching. Coaching\\help is usually on an ad hoc basis.\nSafety is covered both by pool lifeguards, coaches\\helpers and other paddlers. Parents bringing juniors are expected to monitor them from the poolside too as coaching isn\u0027t on a 1 to 1 basis. Buoyancy Aids are available, but aren\u0027t a substitute for supervision.\nIf you book a space and need to cancel a refund will only be given if the place it taken up by someone on a waiting list as the club has to pass on the money to the pool.\nPlease note that swimming in the pool whilst boats are on the water is not allowed for safety reasons.\nWho can come?\nThe sessions are open to any ability, aged 5 or over. The early session is open to all, with an emphasis on Juniors. The later session is intended to be more suited to adults. Please contact us if you have questions.\nWhat do you need?\nBring a swimming costume\\shorts, a t shirt can make the boat more comfortable. You may wear swim shoes, but no footwear with laces, or flipflops in the pool.\nBuoyancy aids are optional, but juniors are expected to wear them unless they are strong swimmers.\nWe have paddles, boats, spraydecks \u0026 BAs at the pool available to borrow.\nCost\nYou may book both the early \u0026 late session if you want to have a longer session.\n","IsCustomDescription":false,"Types":{"Types":[{"ID":4,"Name":"3.

This will be on rivers up to grade 2.\nYou will learn how to use the environmental factors to identify where and when to paddle. This includes the water grade, the weather, other paddlers and the features. You will learn to choose the best equipment to keep you warm and safe on the water. As well as any water etiquette that there may be for the water on which you wish to paddle.\nWhite water is a dynamic and ever-changing environment. You will learn the skills required to ensure that you stay in control of your boat at all times and can drive your boat proactively around the river. This includes crossing flow; you will look at how your speed angle and edge can help improve the outcome. As well as how you can look at “future water” to ensure you cross successfully. You will look at how you can link different strokes to help you maintain the direction of your boat. As well as those that you will need to change direction and steer.\u0027\nFind out more here: https://paddlesuptraining.com/...\nDetails\nThis course will run by Dave Beecroft and 1 or 2 coaches. \nClub kit will be available, but you will need to arrange transport between candidates. You will also need sensible white water clothing for the water temperature as there will be some rescues involved.\nBring snacks, a packed lunch (that will fit in your boat - so no hampers!) and drinks for the day. \nThose who demonstrate the skills and knowledge set out in the White Water Award description will be issued with a Certificate at the end of the day. You can read that here: https://www.britishcanoeingawa...\nLocation\nThe location will be decided nearer the time - it is likely to be Matlock or similar. Your course leader will inform you of the details nearer the time via email. \n\nCertificate\nIf you wish to register your achievement of the award you will need to pay the provider directly. Costs are £20 for Non-British Canoeing Members and £10 for Members. These costs are set by BC.","IsCustomDescription":false,"Types":{"Types":[{"ID":2,"Name":"6.

(No boots with hook-laces to be worn, see kit list below). The ladder is recommended for anyone who wishes to progress to more challenging caving trips, like the one to P8 on the 25th June.

They worked long hours picking away at the rock with just a candle for light. \nThe English Civil War 1642-49 led to cheaper ways of manufacturing gunpowder, and after the war ended this started to be used by miners to break up rock. Look out for drill holes which were fed with gunpowder and a fuse. This was dangerous work, as an accidental spark could cause a fatal explosion. The tool used to push gunpowder into the holes was called a \u0027Widow-maker\u0027. \nTo make a full day of it:\nThere’s plenty to do in Matlock Bath and for a full-on mining themed day out, you could also visit the Peak District Mining Museum in the pavilion in Matlock Bath, or the show mines on Mason Hill. Also in the area is the Heights of Abraham, watching kayakers play on the slalom site, or simply enjoy a chippy tea, alongside the bikers on the main drag.\nBrief kit list:\nHelmets, head torches, harnesses and all other equipment will be provided.It will be cold, and you could get damp so wear thermals and a fleece, or other lightweight layers (not cotton or denim) and some cheap waterproof over-trousers and coat/jacket.Wellies are best, no walking boots as the lace hooks can get caught in the ladder.Suggest gardening gloves if you have some to protect your hands, but not essential.Knee pads and elbow pads, worn under your waterproofs, are also advisable if you are crawling.","IsCustomDescription":false,"Types":{"Types":[{"ID":6,"Name":"4.
