Here at Tees Barrage we have a passion for paddlesports and offer a number of British Canoeing Accredited courses.
We offer a huge range of courses delivered by our fully qualified and experienced instructors. Our coaches are all highly qualified and have paddled extensively around the UK, Europe as well as in many other worldwide destinations. Our coaches have a vast array of experience and specialist expertise in many disciplines. They are all extremely friendly, and they are always happy to talk paddling and offer their help, assistance and advice.

Try our Paddlesports Course Adventure Days (Holiday Courses) or Adventure Weeks during your next school holiday break. (A multi activity day/week, both on the water and on Air Trail high ropes course).
Ages 10-16 only.
This two hour entry level course provides the skills to manoeuvre a kayak and focuses on forward, backward, turning stopping and some fun and games. After the course is completed the usual step is to progress onto the British Canoeing Star Awards. One Star would be the next step but a lot of people once completing the Intro look to join a local club to consolidate what they have just learnt.
