Please look through the site for top quality coach development, safety and skill courses.

Calder Canoe Centre was set up in 2000 to provide reasonable cost, high quality coaching courses for Cumbria and Lancashire paddlers. Since then our reputation has grown and we now have coaches travelling from as far as British Columbia and Austria to take part in British Canoeing coach education courses.

Courses are hosted at Waddow Hall Clitheroe or on South Lakes Rivers

All courses are professionally delivered and meet British Canoeing specifications. Canoes and kayaks are available to use on the course if necessary and a full range of equipment is available to meet the needs of the coach development and skills courses.
