In the crystal clear, thermal waters of the New Bath Hotel outdoor pool Matlock Canoe Club have been offered a unique opportunity to teach kids to kayak. Kayak Kids is ideally suited to children aged 7 to 11 years (school year 2 to year 6). Sessions will be structured with warm-up games for the whole group, followed by small group instruction of paddling skills and finishing off with some more games.
You will need to be a member of Matlock Canoe Club to join Kayak Kids (for insurance cover). When your place at the pool is confirmed, you will be able to join the Club at matlockcanoeclub.co.uk
Kayak Kids will be on Monday evenings from 6 to 7 pm. There will be four sessions each month but the pool is closed roughly every 5 weeks for cleaning. There will be no Monday session on cleaning weeks but there will be a pool session on the previous Sunday evening where you will be able to meet other club members, try out some different boats or even get your parents in a boat!
Dates of the 2024 sessions:-
We will then start again in the Spring, date not yet confirmed.
Cost: £10 a session. Booked and paid monthly in advance (just book & pay for the dates you can do)
Note: To join Matlock Canoe Club children must be able to swim 50 metres unaided, wearing clothes and a buoyancy aid.
Also note: At all sessions, children must be closely supervised (on the poolside) at all times, by a parent or guardian.
