Paddling sessions and where we meet
The club has two "homes". These are our Club House at Colt Hill which is on the Basingstoke Canal near Odiham and the QMC Sports Centre Swimming Pool, Basingstoke.
Our main Club night is Wednesday evening. We are currently meeting at the QMC Pool on Wednesday evenings and will continue to do so until we move to the Basingstoke Canal in April. Look at our club sessions page to find out more.
BCU Aquatic First Aid Level 1
Typically the Club runs two level 1 Aquatic First Aid Courses each year. The next course will be on Saturday 10th February 2018.
Holding an 8 hour first aid qualification is a requirement for BCU Coaches level 1 and 2 and for the Pool Endorsement. We recommend that all canoeists should hold at least an 8 hour qualification, such as the BCU Level 1 Aquatic First Aid.
BCU Aquatic First Aid Level 2
This is the 16 hour first aid course. Attendance on the Level 1 course within the previous 4 weeks is a pre-requisite for the Level 2 course. The next Level 2 course will be on Saturday 10th February 2018 (L1 day) and Sunday 11th February 2018 (L2 day).
Holding an 16 hour first aid qualification is a requiement for BCU Level 3 Coaches and new level 2 coaches with moderate water endorsement.
Adult Intro Course (One Star)
February & March 2018
This course will include all the elements required to get the paddler to 1 Star level, starting in the warmth of the swimming pool at QMC, then moving on to the Basingstoke Canal at Odiham.
