We love seeing that glimmer in people’s eyes when they truly find a new passion for adventurous activities. If you are looking to progress your interest in outdoor pursuits, we offer a range of nationally recognised qualifications in various watersports throughout the year, plus our very own Accelerated Instructor Training course.
You will receive expert tuition and coaching from our instructors, who will be happy to answer any questions you have along the way. Each syllabus involves a mixture of practical experience and theory work. Please see the website for current course dates.
If you are simply looking for an introduction to a sport, or would rather learn on your own timescale, then we offer individual coaching throughout the season too. Then, when you feel you are ready, we can direct you towards the next step. Give us a call on 01708 224753 for a chat.
