What's On

We offer a range of activities throughout the year including weekly club nights throughout the summer months (twice monthly in the winter), British Canoe award training (Start, Discover, Explore and discipline specific awards), This Girl Can evenings, day trips and weekends away.

Throughout the year we also run taster sessions and monthly pool sessions, where members can practice skills in a warm and controlled environment.

Have a look at the calendar to see what’s coming up soon.

British Canoe awards and training

The club caters for all abilities (age 10 and over), and in addition to recreational paddling opportunities, we offer members the chance to train for and take British Canoeing Paddle Awards and Personal Performance Awards.

These sessions take place on Club nights on a Wednesday. Sessions start at 6.30pm.

This Girl Can

On Tuesday evenings throughout the summer months, we hold This Girl Can paddling sessions for our female members. These ladies-only sessions are part of a national campaign aimed to build confidence on the water and encourage more women and girls to take up and enjoy paddlesports. The sessions focus on skills and activities participants would like to practice and develop alongside taking part in British Canoeing awards and club night sessions.

If you would like to come along and find out more we run taster sessions over the summer months – please see our calendar for dates and email secretary@norwicheaglecanoeclub.co.uk to book a place.

Day trips and weekends away

Throughout the year, we offer a programme of local day trips and weekends away, offering our members the chance to paddle and experience different water environments. We offer a mixed programme catering for different abilities and interests, including touring on the Norfolk Broads and local rivers, white water paddling and sea kayaking.

We have a number “progressive series” activities (white water, touring, sea kayaking) so that the activities become more “challenging” as the season progresses. Club members will receive an email with full details of each trip, providing information about the level of experience required to enjoy it safely. New ideas for the Club’s programmes are always welcome and will add to the variety of what we can offer.

Take a look at our photo gallery and Facebook page to have a look at pictures and videos from past trips, or read our club newsletter.

Taster sessions

If you would like to ‘try before you buy’, we run taster sessions on the Monday before the first Wednesday in the month. Please see our club calendar for dates. There is a small charge of £10 per adult and £5 per child for these sessions.

If you would like to attend one of these sessions, please contact secretary@eaglecanoeclub.co.uk to book onto the next available date.

Paddlesports-related courses

Other British Canoeing courses and qualification are also held at Eagle Canoe Centre, run by the Club or other external providers. These include Foundation Safety and Rescue training, BC coaching qualifications and paddlesport-specific first aid courses.

These courses form part of our club Coach Development programme for existing coaches, and for those looking to become coaches.

The courses are also often open to both members and non-members. Please contact secretary@eaglecanoeclub.co.uk for enquiries relating to the courses we offer, or contact the provider named against the course in the calendar below.
