What is the Adventure Access Academy?

The Adventure Access Academy is designed to help young paddlers who have an interest in developing their paddling skills with like minded people. The academy is aimed at 14 – 18 year olds and giving them the opportunity to get some paddlesports coaching from qualified and experienced instructors. We want to help young paddlers develop their paddling skills, help their social and communications skills as well as improving general health and wellbeing through paddlesport. There is also the opportunity to lead onto industry recognised personal performance awards, potential work experience and give a pathway to coaching qualifications.   

The sessions will take place in a variety of paddlesports craft from kayaks to SUP’s and will happen on a fortnightly basis.

Who is the Academy for?

The Academy is aimed at young paddlers aged between 14 and 18 years old who have had some previous tuition with us, such as a lesson or taster session. They should also be keen to improve their paddling skills. At the time of booking we will ask for any previous experience the paddler has had so please tell us there. 

If they have not had any previous paddlesports experience then our taster sessions & lessons might be more suitable starting point with and you can check these out by clicking here…
