BCU Paddlepower

Our Paddlepower canoe and kayak classes are delivered near Edinburgh at Levenhall Links in Musselburgh, East Lothian.

The scheme allows young paddlers to experience all aspects of the sport, including competition and adventure elements. These awards are recommended for paddlers under 15 years of age. It’s colourful and youth centred approach aims to:

  • Encourage more young people to come into and stay in the sport

  • Provide progression and reward achievement in a wide range of topics

  • Show them all aspects of the sport – both competitive and adventurous

  • Provide signposts into Clubs where their skills and development can be nurtured

  • Provide a flexible structure for delivery according to venue/situation

Initial classes will be for the delivery of the Paddlepower Passport. Subsequent classes may then be added if there is enough interest to continue to Paddlepower Discovery, this takes paddlers to the equivalent of a 2 Star standard.
