Club Sessions

Club Sessions

Through the winter months, the club trains at Maltby Leisure Centre where we run regular club sessions for one to one coaching for beginners to advanced, slalom and polo training. These are usually held on Saturday afternoons.


In summer, we move outside to our lake in Finningley, Doncaster.  We offer sessions here at two times on Mondays and Wednesdays.


Various river sessions are also held on weekday evenings and weekends.


In addition, we travel to various rivers across the UK for training and competitions.
