Junior Overview

Information for new junior members

All junior beginners must complete a 3 week Introductory Course. These are held at 9.00am on Saturdays and cost £40 for 3 sessions. Please arrange these by emailing Ryan at: juniorcoaching@royalcanoeclub.com

If you decide to join, then there are 2 fees that need to be paid.

  • A TWC (Teddington Watersports Centre) fee is paid annually for use of the site. This is currently £135 for junior members.
  • Monthly coaching subscription fees are £39, payable to the Royal Canoe Club. Juniors who have completed the Introductory Course will be able to attend a minimum of four coached sessions each week. Sessions are on Wednesdays at 6.00pm, Fridays at 5.00pm, Saturday mornings at 10.30am and Sunday mornings at 9.00am (unless there is a race – in which case they will normally be expected to race).
  • Coaching subscriptions are due on the first of every calendar month.
    NOTE: Coaches will advise about progression to the next level. This is based on a ‘handicap’ criteria.
