The Club


View Larger Map

The club was formed in 1982 by Tony Pell and is run by an enthusiastic Management Committee supported by several qualified coaches. Click on Contact Us at the bottom of the page for a list of the current year's officials.

We are a family club and we actively encourage parents, friends and canoeists of all ages and abilities to join in the fun.

Paddling

From April to September we paddle on the River Ancholme, meeting in our new boathouse just behind the Ancholme Lesiure Centre.

From October to March we paddle in the Pool at the Ancholme Lesiure Centre. More information about our river and pool sessions can be found on the sessions page.

We actively promote most canoeing activities such as white water, canoe polo and marathon, sprint and slalom racing. To find out more please visit out disciplines page.

We also cater for the tourer on river trips and weekends away are regularly organised throughout the year.

British Canoe Union

The club is affiliated to the British Canoe Union (BCU), which is the national governing body of our sport. This ensures that all members of the club, whether canoeists or otherwise, are covered by insurance at all club events. However, if a paddler wishes to enter competitions outside the club, i.e. slalom, marathon or canoe polo, they would be well advised to have individual BCU membership. In fact, for some competitions it is a condition of entry.

Club Membership Fees

Club membership fees are due at the end of December each year. These cover the club's overheads, including BCU affiliation fees, boat licences for the River Ancholme and for the running costs for the boathouse.

At present membership fees are £10 per person per year. Individual BCU membership is extra and is obtained directly from the BCU.

Safety, Child Protection and Legal

The club take your safety, child protection and legal issues seriously. However canoeing is an Assumed Risk Sport that may carry attendant risks. Please click on the legal button for more details of these issues.
