It is now 2019 and the best way to get a quick start in the sport is to come along to one of Edmonton Canoe Group introductory sessions. Usually on Saturdays although at present they are in a heated swimming pool early Sunday evenings. They can also be arranged at any time email  & I will get back to you.

For those of you who have already done some Kayaking you could learn to roll your kayak. It is not as hard as you think. This time of year definatly in a swimming pool.

Pool sessions have finished until October 2019

Founded in 1983 the Edmonton Canoe Group is now celebrating 36 years of introducing newcomers to our sport.

We have an enthusiastic group of members of all ages who enjoy paddling with us. There is something for everyone from gentle trips exploring the quiet lakes and streams in the Lee Valley to day trips to the Sea. For the more adventurous you can try the thrills of whitewater with visits to mountain rivers and the Olympic white water course at Waltham Abbey.

Edmonton specialize in introducing beginners and families who want to learn how to paddle. We can also set up special sessions for groups, if you have a youth group or group of friends at work contact us and discuss what you would like to do. Birthday parties are always good fun.
