Club Paddle

Junior paddle club

A weekly paddle with the emphasis on fun while learning new skills across different craft. A high chance of getting wet!!!

Open to all Club members from 8 - 16, our Junior Paddle Club is all about having fun on the water! Make new friends, paddle new boats, get awesome at kayaking - all at once!

If this is your first time

  • Please ensure you have correct and up to date medical information for your junior. You can edit your junior medical information here.
  • There is a £45 one-off training fee. Note: if you have already paid the one-off training fee, but still see an option to pay, please contact us so we can update your account to indicate you have paid.
  • If your child enjoys the training (they all do!) and wants to continue paddling with us, they will need to become a member of both British Canoeing (£29 annually) and Maidstone Canoe Club (£36 annually). After that, all sessions are free!

If your child has already completed the training

  • Just turn up and have fun!


All sessions are led by our fully-qualified and insured coaches. All our coaches and leaders hold an up-to-date DBS check. We provide all boats, paddles and safety equipment.

For suggestions on what to wear, please see this page.


All our trips are run by club members like you, and unless specifically described otherwise, they are peer paddles.

If you think that you would benefit from the support of a formal river leader or coach, please contact the trip organiser in advance - we can usually arrange something! Otherwise you should be confident that your own ability matches the trip as planned.

If your trip is being led by someone, a more experienced paddler, river leader, or a coach - it is your responsibility to mention any medical or other issues which may arise during the trip.
