No training sessions

Saturday sessions are best recommended for new paddlers to the club.

 

There are toilets, change rooms and shower facilities available and open during all training sessions.

Please note these are ‘ON THE WATER ‘times. It is recommended arrival time be 30 minutes prior to training times in order to have a chat, help with the boats and participate in group warm up.

If the weather is too wet (raining) to go out on the water then the training moves to land based training. Training will only be cancelled if the weather turns really bad. Please check personal emails and our Facebook site https://www.facebook.com/CallingRedcliffeRedDragons for changes to training sessions in inclement weather.

All newcomers to our club are advised to attend their first session on a Saturday morning, arrive at scheduled training times and seek out our coaching staff (see below).
