Kayaking for juniors at Swan Canoe Club happens on selected afternoons during school terms (day depends on ages, experience and numbers), and during most school holidays.

Kayaking for juniors is available to children aged 9+ providing they are able to swim and can submerge their head under water (must be prepared to get wet). Children can learn skills to become white water Slalom paddlers or to paddle flat water in Guppies leading to the Olympic Sprint discipline, marathon and surf skis.

If a junior is interested in joining the classes, a junior induction is required to gauge how we can best accommodate the new student. These are one-on-one, and can be arranged by contacting admin@swancanoeclub.org.au.

Here’s a video showing the junior slalom group enjoying a training session at the Club (many thanks to Richard Seale and Kate Vyvyan).
