U canoe

U canoe is British Canoeings new initiative to get teenagers and  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. Working over the winter to develop techniques like capsizing and rolling techniques we are ready to head out onto the river this spring.
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 about having an adventure, develop skills developing responsibility and undertaking activities with awareness of controlled risks, like developing whitewater skills, undertaking expeditions and participating in paddling sessions with independence.
Paddling sessions  
There is always something to do at Whoosh Explore. We offer paddling taster sessions for young paddlers as well as family paddles available each day during the school holidays from Reedings Meadow.
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 Shed Café, a walk or bike off road round the lakes or river after your paddle.
