Tamar Paddle Power

After a successful introduction to the Paddle Power program last year it’s time to get the kids back in the water again. Just a reminder that the program is targeted at 8 – 14 year olds. We would like to encourage any club members to get their kids involved in a structured paddling program. We also welcome friends of club members to bring their kids along. The program is focussed on having fun whilst learning a range of paddling skills.

The program will run over summer beginning with a come and try day followed by a program that runs regularly over a number of weeks. Details are below.

  • 9.30am to 11.30am
