Paddling lessons for kids and adults

Adults as well as children can learn to canoe at Florida Lake. Children can participate in regular races hosted at various clubs throughout Gauteng and earn points for completion of races which accumulate towards the annual prizegiving - the points are awarded to the paddler, the school they attend and the club where they train.

Children can participate in interprovincial/interschool sprint competitions, and provincial marathon events in K1 (single Kayak) or K2 / K4 etc as they become proficient. Junior colours can be awarded by Gauteng Canoe Union if they earn sufficient points/ podium positions.
