Want to have a go?

We run adhoc taster sessions in kayak and/or canoe on Thursday evenings (or by appointment at other times subject to coach and equipment availability.  Please use the contacts form to register your interest.

Sessions will typically last 30 minutes with a qualified coach, you will be taken through a set of basic rules and basics for the boat in question followed by a short session on the water.


The club has a large range of boats (types and sizes), buoyancy aids and paddles that are available for loan during taster sessions.

What you will need?

Participation in taster sessions is subject to suitable personal attire according to the weather conditions on the day. Light clothing that will not hold large amounts of water is recommended with a simple kagool being particularly useful.

As we are talking about a water sport, there is a chance of getting wet or splashed so bringing a change of clothing is strongly recommended. Use of the changing rooms and shower facilities is included as part of the session.

After the session

Your coach will be available for a short time after the session to answer questions and to advise on taking your next steps with CSCC.

There are drinks and snacks are available in the club house.

Note! Participation in these sessions will be allowed at the discretion of coach running the session.
