Sunday Morning Club (SMC) is open to all Members and Guests from 1000 to 1200 with opportunities to paddle Canoe or Kayak, indeed select from a range of craft, with coaches on hand to help and advise. 

Tuesday Club Nights (TuCN)  Open to all Members with opportunities for Coached Attendance and Independent Attendance.  This is an evening session the Club is gradually developing.  During the cooler months, October to Easter, the sessions may be indoors on 'paddling machines' with opportunities to look at forward paddling techniques and fitness.

Pool Sessions continue on a Tuesday at Meadowside; please book your place on the Pool Session sheet in the Club Room (please do not just turn up at the pool!)

Thursday Club Nights (ThCN) begin just after Easter and go through to the last Thursday in September from 1830 to 2030.  Thursday Club Nights are the main evening sessions of the summer when casual coaching delivery and/or more formal 'course' coaching delivery is available.  Please check Notice Boards for details.

During the cooler months, October to Easter, there are occasional workshops for members; these cover a wide range of topics related to our sport.

Community Coaching.  The Club welcomes interest from all members of the community. The Club has recently purchased significant amounts of equipment specifically to support anyone with a disability interested in canoeing.  Please contact the Club for more information.

Please note that as of 1st February  the Community Coaching programme is already 25% booked up for 2018.  If you help with a Burton based community group and would like to see the river and Washlands from a different perspective do contact the club!

As a Club Accredited to Sport England and British Canoeing as a "Paddle-Ability" Club its volunteers are keen to improve access to the river bank.  Sited on an excellent local park the Club works hard with the local community to contribute to enhancing the environment for all users of the park. 

This project is now finished and has created a brilliant area for both club members and park users, especially those with ambulant issues
