Everyone is welcome to join in with our fun Sunday taster sessions, there’s no need to buy all the equipment before you start canoeing. Put a ‘toe in the water’ by coming along and trying out our range of boats, to see what suits you best.

When and where we meet
Taster sessions are run from the Botley Barkstore once a month. Click here for details.

To help ensure we have sufficient coaches to cover the session, please email the club secretary to let us know you are planning to attend.

What to expect
Our sessions have a number of assigned session leaders. These are qualified coaches and they will organise the session. Please introduce yourself to these people, the membership secretary will have told them to expect you.

The session leaders will help you get kitted out with a boat, paddle and a buoyancy aid, which is essential for all club members. You will then be told what to expect from the session; there might even be a number of activities that you can choose between.

If you have any questions, the session leaders are there to help, but any experienced club members will be willing to help you.

Cost
Taster sessions on Sundays cost £10.00 for adults and £5.00 for under 16s, paid in advance.
 
  Things to bring:

Clothes for on the water -
these need to be weather appropriate, a full wetsuit is ideal if you have one, but if you don’t some light weight shorts or trousers will also work. No jeans or cotton can be worn.

If it is cold then thermals or thin jumpers or fleeces are great.

Some shoes for on the water - beach wetsuit shoes or boots will be ideal. Trainers with loose laces or Wellington boots are not.

A towel.

A change of clothes - although you probably won’t get wet on your first time out, you are still around the water, so just in case it’s best to have some!
