There are a couple of exciting opportunities available to new and existing Cheltenham Canoe Club members which are detailed below.
Junior Development Programme: 10-18 years
The programme is aimed at children who have had some introductory kayaking sessions and would like to develop their skills further and includes pool sessions, river trips and taster slalom and/or polo sessions. These sessions will take place at Sandford Parks Lido on Thursday evenings and at weekends.
A provisional programme is set out below with the first session starting at the Lido on Thursday 4 May 2017 from 7.30pm.
