TYK’s is back – book your place now!
Tandridge Young Kayakers (TYK’s) meet on Sunday afternoons at Thames Young Mariners just north of Kingston-upon-Thames. We take kids from 8-16+ year through the BCU’s PaddlePower awards for canoe & kayak and beyond. All you need is a swimming costume, towel and an old trainers or wet-shoes – everything else is provided (including wet-suit and cagoule).
No experience necessary!
We take novices through to preparation for their 3* award and all the bits in-between. Many of our group go on to paddle slalom, freestyle, polo and river trips across the country. We have a 50:50 split between girls and boys and a full range of ages paddling. This term, as well as our usual paddle coaching, we will continue training our 13-16 year olds for the the BCU’s Cadet Leader award – which is a junior gateway to the L1 coaching award. Alongside TYK’s we will be developing a new generation of club Freestyle paddlers.
