What is the Discover Award?

The Discover Award allows you to develop your decision making and practical skills for a fun and safe time on the water, as you become a more skilled and independent paddler. Through this award you will learn how to choose and effectively use equipment, whilst developing an understanding of the factors which affect your paddling.

Why should I do the Discover Award?

If you want to develop your skills from your Start Award, or feel like you need to expand your basic paddling knowledge further, this is the award you need. The award covers topics such as:

  1. Encouraging independent decision making on different bodies of water (moving river, canal, estuary, harbour), covering safety and weather aspects too
  2. Preparing for self-guided adventures
  3. Equipment you will need for a variety of paddle trips
  4. Further developing your canoe, kayak or SUP paddling and rescue skills

This course is for people new to paddlesports. 

Course schedule:
  1. Swimming pool session at Kingswood School to practice capsize drills - Monday 3rd June at 8.30 pm.
  2. River sessions every Tuesday, 6.00 pm til 9.00 pm
  3. Day trip at the end of the course

For the river sessions you will be expected to arrive at the clubhouse by 6.00pm in order to be on the water for 6.30pm. We will be off the water by about 8.30pm with a debrief in the clubhouse and finish at 9.00pm.

It is most useful but not essential to do the pool session before any of the river sessions. If you wish to do this course but are unable to come to the scheduled pool session you will be welcome to attend any subsequent pool session(s).


This course is aimed at anyone over 18. There will be courses in the summer aimed at family groups.

You do not need to be a club member to take this course
