Whether you are stepping in a boat for the first time or you are an experienced paddler that wants to improve your play boating skills the pool and Pinkston flat water sessions are an ideal place to do this. At each session we have a number of coaches or experienced paddlers that can help you improve your skills.

Starting 12th October we begin our winter pool sessions which are held at The Time Capsule pool, in Coatbridge, on a Wednesday evening.  These sessions run from 7pm till 8.00. We ask all members to arrive 15 minutes before to get ready and get equipment.

During the summer the club will be moves back to its outdoor sessions which are held at  Pinkston Watersports. These sessions start at 7pm and finish about 8.30pm. Please bring appropriate clothing and be there sharp with time to get ready.

We use a booking system to allow us to manage numbers. This allows users to pay for their session in advance via card or direct from your bank account on PayPal. Unfortunately sessions are non refundable due to the fact the club need to commit to funds with the venues in advance. This helps the club minimise the fees that it charges for membership and sessions.

Any new members are required to contact us before booking. Information on how to do this can be found on the contact page of this site.

New comers are eligible for 2 trial sessions (water usage charges are £4 for kids and £6 for adults) before you are asked to become a member. This allows you the opportunity to see if the sport is for you. While the club is based at Pinkston we also allow one FREE taster session as part of this trial.
