Paddlesport Days

From the adventure days at the OVAC Adventure Centre, Paddlesport days are aimed at developing your personal skills in paddlesport - from canoeing to kayaking.  Whether a complete beginner, or with previous experience our fun coaching days are aimed at all levels of ability.

As British Canoe Union coaches, Live the Adventure's staff experience will be shared with you in canoe, kayak & Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUP's).

With the option to attend a single date or do multiple adventure days as a progression to gaining nationally recognised qualifications from the British Canoe Union. For those aged between 11-14 yrs there is the opportunity to work through the BCU Paddlepower Awards and for those 14 yrs plus there is the option to work towards BCU Star Awards.

The paddlepower is a progression, whether part done with us on one session or fully over the 4, or even finished somewhere else. The idea being they buy the passport and complete as and when. When all elements are mastered you can submit to BCU for the final certificate.
