Week 1 - Saturday 22 September 10am-12pm

Club introduction and learning paddling basics. Drills to practice the basics and build towards some short sprints by the end of the session. Then putting it all together, you will do some mini races in mixed crews with our experienced paddlers. Followed by big welcome brunch!

Week 2 - Saturday 29 September 10am-12pm

Review and practice paddling basics. Timing and technique drills, working towards longer efforts and practice some race starts.

Plenty of coffee and food options nearby so you're perfectly located to hang with some newfound teammates afterwards.

Week 3 - Saturday 6 October 9am-12pm

Review paddling basics and short practice drills. Break into small teams mix of beginners and experienced paddlers to compete in our #STORMSCAVENGERS race* (club teambuilding event)

In teams, you will complete a series of challenges and puzzles at various check points. You will paddle, run, jump, walk, and problem solve to get to the finish line. Who will get there first?!

*You must have attended at least one of the prior sessions to be able to participate in the race. No exception.

We are a non-profit organisation, fees collected will cover material costs for the event.
