Junior Section (9-17)

The Junior section is for all members aged between 9 and 17.  The members can take part in any of the general activities that they qualify for – some activities may be restricted to different Star levels.  Check out the calendar for a full list of club activities on offer.

We also run an activity for the Junior section every Sunday (that we are open) ranging from training sessions in kayaks, open canoe and Bell Boat, to Treasure Hunt, Canoe Polo, games and races.  The Splash n’ Dash” session is usually run from 2.00pm to 3.30pm – no need to book, just turn up and join in.  There is generally no extra cost for this activity.










Each year we train and enter teams into the London Youth Games for the Kayak Slalom competition representing their Borough. We assist with Barnet, Brent and Haringey.

The Phoenix Canoe Club gained accreditation of Sport England’s “ClubMark” in June 2010.



Sport England recognises and values the commitment made by sports clubs to develop high quality, welcoming environments for young participants. The development of clubs that encourage young people to take-up sport, improve their talents, possibly play a leadership role and give them the option to initiate and maintain life-long participation in sport is an essential part of supporting the sporting infrastructure in England.

Clubmark was introduced in 2002 by Sport England to:

  • To empower parent(s)/carer(s) when choosing a club for their children.
  • To ensure that Clubmark accredited clubs are recognised through a common approach to branding.
  • To provide a focus around which all organisations involved in sport can come together to support good practice in sports clubs working with children and young people.

Clubmark accreditation is awarded to clubs that comply with minimum operating standards in four areas:
