Coaching map

BADCC aims to run a variety of introductory and intermediate level courses that are described on this page.  We also run a range of safety and rescue training and assessment for BCU Star awards.

Third Saturday every month from March to September in 2018



We shall be running kayak taster days on the Basingstoke Canal at Odiham.

(PaddlePower Start & Passport)

Starting 10th January 2018

This is will be a beginners kayaking course aimed at juniors (under 12).  The course will comprise 6 1/2 hour sessions (with 15 min beforehand to get ready) in the warmth of the QMC swimming pool. There will also be a Saturday session on the Basingstoke Canal (Odiham) organised at a time to suit the participants. This session will be when the weather is warmer as young people kayaking in the winter get cold very quickly.

Three Star Sea Kayak Training

The next sea kayak introductory course will be start in May 2018.  The course will comprise three evenings' introduction to techniques for long boats on the Basingstoke Canal followed by two day paddles on the relatively sheltered waters of Poole Harbour, the Jurassic Coast or Southampton Water to introduce the basics of sea kayaking using the Club's sea kayaks to paddlers who are confident paddling on the flat water of the canal.
