The Academy provides an opportunity to new paddlers, to the sport. New paddlers will be required, after the first introductory session to provide their own equipment (boat, paddle), although disadvantaged paddlers who are otherwise unable to participate in the sport due of financial constraints may be assisted, subject to limited resources of the club, with the use of equipment and free coaching. Children under the age of 12 may be able to utilize Academy equipment during coaching times. All children under the age of 14 using Academy equipment are required to wear a lifejacket and paddle under the supervision of a responsible adult.
