Here at CVCC we are pleased to announce the reintroduction of the above awards after the Covid break! Subject to coach cover, the following awards will run over the 2022 season.
Start – for those having completed their first session on the water. A single-session award.
Discover – for those either with some skills wanting recognition or those who, over a small number of sessions, will gain skills and knowledge to achieve the award. This could run from two to four sessions, for paddlers to gain the award, dependent on progress.
Explore – for those who already have some reasonable skills and want to become more independent paddlers, making decisions for themselves with the knowledge learnt. This will require a minimum of two sessions dependent on the experience of paddlers.
