My son is 11 next month and really keen to come along to one of the Easter Junior camps. I am an ex rower myself and feel he is mature enough to take part. He has been kayaking a number of times with Scouts. He is an extremely competent swimmer and plays rugby for our local club.
Would you consider him I see that the courses are for 12+
Hi Jayne, apologies for not replying earlier. For some reason i did not receive a notification of your message. as you will now be aware, as we all are, all activity and courses have been cancelled for the foreseeable future.
If your son is still interested, and bearing in mind he is now 12 .. happy birthday to him … please complete the form on our website registering your interest meaning you will get immediate notification once dates are rearranged.
Apologies again for our late response
Keep well, and stay safe
Hello, since the lock down has been phased out a small bit, are there any courses within the near future? My daughter has interest in joining the squad for under 18s and so i saw it fit for her to first take this training course. So is there any hope of having courses in autumn or late summer?
Courses for Juniors are normally held Easter and summer Anneke but we may look at trying to squeeze one in sooner, or alternative ways in which young people can join us earlier.
If you email our Club Secretary, he will keep your details on file and let you know dates as and when they come available firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your message, hope to see your daughter on the water very soon
