Community Coaching. The Club welcomes interest from all members of the community. The Club has recently purchased significant amounts of equipment specifically to support anyone with a disability interested in canoeing. Please contact the Club for more information. The Club has strong links with the Water Sports Hub Club at Blessed Robert Sutton Sports College and with Satellite Clubs such as De Ferrers Academy. Numerous primary and secondary schools, such as Fountains School, also use the Club facilities. Several Scout and Guide groups also use the facilities.
