Various programme opportunities for Oct – just book the courses and trips that suit you and hopefully link in with others on the programme.

 

 

Special offer for those Junior Leaders already registered with us….. Book any activity with EP over Oct and pay only £10 in total as part of the Junior Leader Programme

Over the winter season we don’t have the daylight to run an outdoor Junior Leader programme but we would strongly encourage all currently involved to attend the pool courses and Love to Paddle Saturday journeys. The winter pool season is excellent for developing confidence in capsizes, rescues and advancing skills in warm, clear, blue water – contact Harry or Chloe if you need any more info and they will be glad to help.

 

As part of the Junior Leader programme, you will be taking part in the sessions, but helping out a bit too and getting mentoring from our experienced coaches running the sessions.

 

£10 for the month of Oct all in – this allows you to do any EP course (must be booked).

 

This is only open to existing participants for this month If you are interested in taking part when we open up intake again please send in a booking for to register your interest.

 

Further info

This is a development programme for young people (14+) and adults, who enjoy their paddling and want to build skills and experience, so they can help on club activities, log volunteering hours (UCAS points) and gain internationally recognised vocational canoeing qualifications.

 

Including skills, safety and rescue coaching towards the prerequisites for internationally recognised leadership and coaching qualifications and an introduction to leadership and coaching theory and practice. Coached and mentored by our well qualified and experienced coach educator.

 

Coaching qualification pre-requisite courses; 2 star, 3 star, FSRT (safety and rescue), First Aid, Safeguarding, etc will be organized to suit the availability of the participants in preparation for Paddlesport Leader and Instructor courses in the Autumn.

 

We have a small cohort already working towards their first qualifications and we welcome more people to join in. Please contact email@ernepaddlers.org.uk

Sun 8 Mar

 

Venues TBC

 

This is a series of 6 Sunday Paddles over the winter, introducing juniors (who have some previous paddling experince) to easy moving water, with 2 each of surf, river and sea trips – date below.

 

These will be coached and guided by well qualified and experienced coaches, so everyone will be in good hands with safety and enjoyable learning as our main aims, following best practice for inducing children to moving water in a step by step progressive programme.

 

This is also an opportunity to meet up with other clubs and paddlers of the same age and ability, share new experiences, make new friendships and be part of the wider paddlesports scene, as well as gaining new skills and personal performance awards.

 

The cost is as cheap as we can make for club members it at £10 per trip or £50 for booking on all 6. (Price included in the Jr Leader Development Programme)

 

Each trip will be in a different location, Donegal Bay, Mourne River, etc, so will involve a bit of driving and waiting, for you as parents, but we are keen to get parents to work together and share lifts and grab a coffee together while waiting, etc if possible.

 

This is a great programme, a great experience for young paddlers and has been running successfully in CANI for some years now.
