Often due to new surroundings and a change to lifestyle patterns, tracking and supporting student’s initial interest in canoeing and maintaining regular participation has often been left to the university clubs alone.
In order to capture and develop that interest as well as appeal to newcomers, British Canoeing has several opportunities aimed at helping boost the number of University students participating in Paddlesport.
The following Opportunities and Resources are specifically designed for students.
- U Canoe
- Higher Education Canoe Representative Scheme
- Duke of Edinburgh Award
- Personal Performance Awards
- Go Canoeing
- Coaching and Leadership
- Support with Funding
