BBA - 1 Star Paddling Course
Thursday, 7 June 2012 at 18:00 (BST)
BCU 1 STAR COURSE (Introduction to Canoeing) - 8 places available per 4 week course
As an introductory course, the BCU 1Star has FUN at the heart of it as you become familiar with the equipment and how to handle it both on and off the water.
The 4 week course is delivered at Brentford lock which provides a safe and fun stretch of water, where the odd long boat chugs slowly past and wildlife birds build nests!
- The 1 STAR certificate provides the ideal introduction and understanding of the building blocks of the sport of canoeing. We’re sure you’ll become hooked and want to learn more!
- All places must be booked in advance

When & Where
Brentford Boating Arch
Brentford Boating Arch (BBA) has been providing water sport lessons (canoe and kayaking) and development training programmes to schools, youth and community groups since 2007. Based in Hounslow beneath Kew Bridge, BBA operates under the Adventure Activities Licensing Service (AALS) ensuring that all activities follow strict safety practices. In 2011 the facility was fully refurbished with changing rooms, toilets, showers, boat and equipment storage, a small classroom and fitted kitchen.
Brentford Boating Arch also offers a social programme including child, youth, adult and family paddles. BBA also caters for participants with learning and physical disabilities, whilst our purpose built katakanus cater for children with more complex needs, making the waterways accessible to all.
Our courses present paddlers with challenges ensuring they learn a variety of new skills and abilities. We offer a number of routes for progression including our partner club EDGE Progressive Paddling and with West London White Water - a specialist white water paddling group.
