We’re an active and family orientated club based on the River Calder in Sowerby Bridge, Halifax. Those new to the sport will need to start on one of our beginners courses where our qualified coaches will introduce you to the skills you need to start paddling safely.
As you progress our coaches can introduce you to move advanced skills, white water paddling, open canoes, slalom and freestyle canoeing. There’s also the chance to try sea kayaking, surfing, slalom racing, weekends away and during the winter much of the club’s activity is heading off on river trips to suit various levels of ability.
