This teaches the foundation strokes used in kayaking and canoeing and is a basic introduction to the sport. The first session starts at 10:00am and finishes around 4:00pm. The second session is a river trip which is normally run on the Grand Union Canal at Harefield and we meet at the club house at 10:00am and return around 5:30pm.

We ask that you attend both sessions of the course to avoid affecting the group’s and your own progress. If you don’t manage to reach the standard of 1 star during the two days we will offer further coaching to ensure you reach the required level. For further information you can read the One Star syllabus on Canoe England’s website and see more information about the courses by downloading PCC Phoenix Canoe Club 2017 One Star course flyer.

Some comments from new members on the Introductory One Star courses in 2013 (taken from a satisfaction survey in Oct 2013)

“Lovely friendly club. Instructors very patient”.

“A brilliantly led course. I felt safe and fully briefed at all times. It was challenging for me but am so pleased I did it as it gave me a sense of achievement”.

“A very friendly welcoming club for a beginner”.

“I have been very impressed by the skilled and friendly coaches who give such enthusiastic and dedicated service to the club. They create a really nice and welcoming atmosphere. I hope in time I will be able to find a way to give something back to the club. I also really like the mix of ages of the people kayaking together and am appreciative that an older beginner like myself is welcomed”.

“Great course. Thanks to the team for giving up their time so generously”.

“Really enjoyable. Fun and very friendly, welcoming club”.
