We are going to start our winter river training sessions shortly on Saturdays. The sessions will be mostly held on the River Calder around Ossett. There are 3 small rapids and several stretches of fairly still water to practice on.
Sessions will be open to all club members and we can provide the boats and most equipment. Members would require as a minimum wetsuit shoes – these can be purchased for under £5 for a cheap pair. We have a limited amount of wetsuits but would urge members to look into buying a wetsuit, we can advise on the most suitable types.
Sessions will progress members from paddling on flat water in the pools to paddling on moving water and eventually onto running whitewater rapids.
If members would like to come along to the sessions please email me to register your interest and also the preferred session time – morning, lunchtime or afternoon in order for us to organise the most convenient session time.
