Home Ed Paddling Course

A paddling skills course specifically for home educated children, built around games, fun and learning skills.



Our Home Educated paddling sessions are an opportunity for your kids to develop their paddle sports skills. The sessions will be based primarily in kayaks, however, there will be opportunities to try out other craft on the water, such as Paddleboards and Canoes.

As part of the sessions we will be working towards Paddle UK qualifications such as: Discover, Explore and even the White Water Award. For those that complete this we will also look at Leadership, Instructing and Coaching skills! The kids will get booklets at the start of the course to show them the skills they are working towards getting feedback at the end of each session on what they have learnt and how they can develop further.

There will also be an opportunity to go on Home Ed River Trips for the more advanced paddlers at the end of each term. These trips may take place locally, such as a trip to Warwick Castle, or occur offsite, such as the River Derwent. Your coach will discuss with you whether it’s suitable for your child before booking on.


This course is for you if: You would like to learn and develop your kayaking skills as well as experience paddle boarding and canoeing. Suitable for ages 6 to 14.
