The junior section of the club consists of 2 groups:

Saturday Morning Juniors

For the new junior paddler, these sessions progress through Canoe England’s Paddle Power Scheme which is designed to teach the equivalent of the 1 and 2 star certificate awards in a child friendly manor.  Axe Vale Canoe Clubs unique location in the Axe Estuary allow for a safe and fun environment to learn the basics of kayaking and canoeing.  The Saturday session is run as a course with Summer Membership included.

Wednesday Club Night Juniors

These sessions are for the juniors that have completed their 1 and 2 star awards or Paddle Power Passport and have joined as full club members. These sessions consist of a mixture of short trips, games and fun in the surf whilst building their skills and experience.
