Clubs and coaches from the region come together to provide slalom coaching days and training camps for paddler in the region.  Training is open to paddlers of all ages and abilities (depending on the venue) and rely on volunteer coaches from clubs across the region giving up their time to run these sessions. Regular regular training days run through out the winter months at various venues, and week long training camps run at Grandtully in the spring and in August.

Access and Parking at Sowerby Bridge training

As you may or may not know Halifax CC are in a residential mill complex, so a few reminders for the upcoming session at Sowerby Bridge as we will have a lot of people and boats on site:

  • Parking – we don’t have any, please park in the market car park (see map) and carry your boat and kit to the club – it’s no further than carrying it at a race. The car park is free on Sunday’s
  • Boats – As we will have a lot of boats on site, please take your boat straight to the get on area so it is not in the way.  Between session please take your boats back up to the get on area.
  • Carrying boats – the mill area is full of residents cars, please be careful carrying boats through this area. Parents, please assist supervise your children
  • Facilities – we have changing rooms, showers and toilets in the downstairs section of the club, and a kettle and mircowave upstairs. We’ll also make space for people to gt inside upstairs over lunchtime
  • Residents Parking – most people have moved back in after last year’s flooding, so please do not leave boats and kit (or cars) in residents parking spaces – especially not in the space outside the downstairs changing rooms!!

See the map for parking, walking route from the car park and location of the river access and exit.

Myself and other club members will be there to point people in the right direction, so please follow instructions to get boats etc to where we need them to be.
