BADCC aims to run a variety of introductory and intermediate level courses that are described on this page.  We also run a range of safety and rescue training and assessment for BCU Star awards.

(PaddlePower Start & Passport)

Starting 10th January 2018

This is will be a beginners kayaking course aimed at juniors (under 12).  The course will comprise 6 1/2 hour sessions (with 15 min beforehand to get ready) in the warmth of the QMC swimming pool. There will also be a Saturday session on the Basingstoke Canal (Odiham) organised at a time to suit the participants. This session will be when the weather is warmer as young people kayaking in the winter get cold very quickly.

Starting 3rd January 2018

This course course is aimed at those who have completed the PaddlePower Passport or 1 Star and who wish to complete their PaddlePower Discover (levels 6 to 9).  The course will comprise three sessions in the Queen Mary's College Swimming Pool and two outdoor sessions on the Basingstoke canal our at Colt Hill Clubhouse, Odiham. Upon request we can also ensure that the course meets current 2 Star requirements and testing for 2 Star can be organised separately.
