RCC Junior Taster Sessions:

This year the club welcomed at least 90 children, aged 8 to 16, to our free half term taster sessions. And for once, it was non-stop sunshine. Brian and Seumas were are lead coaches, with the considerable support of a phenomenal team of enthusiastic junior coaches and our land-based helpers.

Our junior coaches demonstrated use of the paddle

Each of the nine sessions were split between marathon boats and slalom and judging by the happy faces (and very few tears), those children had an amazing time. The follow up from these sessions – with requests to join the U10s or the beginner courses – is also clear evidence that they certainly enjoyed their time sampling canoeing.

A huge thank you to all who helped at this event. More to come for Emmer Green in June and during the Children’s Festival in August.

The children were able to try out slalom boats and also the marathon boats
