Club Clothing

We are introducing some new club clothing; very stylish Navy Hoodies, T-shirts and Polo shirts, with red lettering.

All have the club motif on the chest and then individual choice of names can be added to the back or arm etc. You can of course have GSCC across the back.

We are offering:

Hoody Adult  XS – 3XL    £22.00

Hoody Child  5-6yrs   7-8yrs   9-11yrs   12-13 yrs  £15.00

T-Shirt Adult XS – 3XL   £10.00

T-Shirt Child  5-6yrs  7-8yrs  9-11yrs  12-13 yrs   £8.50

Polo Adult   XS – 3XL  £11.50

Polo Child    5-6yrs  7-8yrs  9-11yrs  12-13yrs   £8.50

Any additional words have a cost of £1.00 each on top of the basic garment price. So for example, an Adult Hoody cost is £22.00 (including club logo), then to add  GSCC on the back is £1.00 and your name on the arm is £1.00, total cost £24.00.

Most child orders have gone with XS or S in the adult range when sample sizes have been tried on.
If you have already ordered clothing, please can you pay Vicky on Saturday night at the pool from
4.45pm so that we can get the first batch ordered from the supplier.

If you haven’t ordered yours yet, don’t worry, we will be starting another order straight away. In fact, if you can wait a couple of weeks, we will have some actual GSCC versions for you to see,  modelled by some of our coaches!!

An Introduction to moving water

We are having our first weekend away of 2015 this Easter! The venue is the River Ure at Sleningford Mill Caravan and Camp Site, North Stainley, Ripon, North Yorkshire. This caravan and camping site is right on the river bank and we have full access to the river all weekend!

This weekend is open to all, that is those who have paddled with us previously, and those newcomers who have attended the pool sessions this winter. The river caters for all abilities, with a still pool at the bottom of the site, gentle rapids and a slightly more difficult section for paddlers with a little more experience.

Please note however, that the River Ure has a large catchment area and can rise to high and fast levels, so we reserve the right to cancel any or all of the sessions, for some or all of the paddlers. The senior coaches will assess the river and make this decision on the day.

Should the river be in spate, there is a canal in Ripon we can paddle on, or there is always Lightwater Valley fun park which is only a few miles away!
●    Instructed by our own BCU qualified coaches.
●    Use of club Equipment. (While stocks last!).
●    No fees for instruction, all you pay are your caravan and camping fees.

Add your name to the list on our notice board at the pool to reserve your club equipment and so we have an idea of who is going, and please book early!

Although the use of club boats is free on a first-come-first served base, can everyone please make their own arrangements for transporting the kit to the venue!
