Good variety of boats, rescue equipment, paddles etc. Improved personal paddling skills and got a good introduction to what made a good session. Good technical content which helped improved paddling. Good individual coaching / tips etc. Courses run at a speed that everyone could work to."

"I had a great fun couple of days and learnt loads! Definitely kept busy but that was good. Pre-course information very comprehensive. I was given plenty of opportunities to show what I could do and perform well. I enjoyed the layout of the course and the input from both assessors."

"Lots of input and lots of feedback given throughout course. Information given easy to follow and received in good time. Use of simple terminology really useful. Coaches aware of confidence issues and given opportunities to target specific skills. Learned loads and really enjoyed course. Thank you!"
