Paddlepower Passport (equivalent to 1 star) and Paddlepower Discover ( equivalent to 2 star) are courses that are more suited to juniors aged 8-15. Paddlepower is broken down into a series of levels and within these levels there are various skills that children can work towards and then get signed off in their Paddlepower log book.
The advantage of Paddlepower is that the courses are broken down into more manageable chunks which may be better for the learning of younger paddlers. Even if they don’t get all the levels signed off during the course they get a sense of accomplishment in seeing how far they have progressed and a very clear direction of what they need to work on to progress to the next level.
These courses will be a lot of fun as skills will be learned through regular coaching methods, games and fun competitions.
So parents, if you are looking for a great opportunity to keep your kids amused and occupied for some of the summer, getting fresh air and exercise and learning new skills, instead of being glued to the television or games console, this could be just the ticket.
Proposed dates :
In order for these sessions to run we will need a minimum of 4 children per session and can take up to a maximum of 12. Any course date that doesn’t get the minimum 4 bookings will be cancelled
In previous years we have only opened these courses up to NCKC club members, however recognising that your youngster may wish to bring along a friend or relative we can offer 2 guest places for each member place booked.
