Be a part

Clubs and Centres play a vital role in both introducing and nurturing paddler skills and development. Working with and supporting you, Go Canoeing provides a range of offers, free resources and information to help attract new customers and members.

A dedicated section on this website supports the programme at a national level, with localised listings of your activities. Alongside this we run four seasonal national marketing campaigns. throughout the year to raise awareness and drive people to the website, inspiring them to find out where and how they can get started. You can find out more about these in the booklet download below.

For 2018 we have introduced a scheme that uses a credit based rewards system, based on the number of activities you are running.

Credits can be used to redeem free resources for your activities. The more activities you run that offer clear progressional activities throughout the year the more credits you accumulate.
