Training

 

Training is based around preparing for sprint and marathon races.  We usually run a number of different training groups based on age and/or ability.

PLEASE NOTE – we are not currently working to our usual timetable due to Covid-19.  We are aiming to run as many small groups as possible during the week so people can get out as much as possible, but we do not have the full club sessions as outlined below.

Off the Water

 

During the winter, when it is not possible to train on the water in the evenings, the club runs circuit training classes at Cropredy Village Hall. These replace the Tuesday and Thursday club sessions and run from 7 to 8pm.

 

We also have occasional lectures during the year, covering various aspects of competitive paddling and being an athlete.
