U canoe 2017

U canoe is British Canoeings new initiative to get young people out and paddling. 
Whoosh are paddlesport leaders in young paddlers development. We offer some great watersports sessions to get young people out paddling. 
U Canoe sessions are run with club leaders which are experienced and enthusiastic. We run sessions which treat our teenage paddlers as equals, with no restrictions on what they want to do, the U canoe initiative is to have an adventure, develop skills with Young people taking the responsibility and undertaking activities with controlled risks, like developing whitewater skills, undertaking expeditions and participating in paddling sessions with independence.
Paddling sessions  
There is always something to do at the lakes. We offer paddling taster sessions for young paddlers as well as family paddles available each day during the school holidays from Redricks Lakes.
Young paddlers are free to drop in and borrow a boat for a session at the club, then have a drink or meal at the Cafe, join in a yoga class, try out wild swimming with Redricks lakes or sign up for one of the TRI club taster sessions. Why not book in at Redricks lakes for a fishing session or just enjoy a walk or bike off road round the lakes or river after your paddle.
