Slalom sessions are held on a Tuesday and Thursday evenings meeting at 6pm on the pool outside the white water reception area. If you are unsure just ask behind reception and I am sure they will point you in the right direction. We also have some add hock sessions on a Saturday with a mixed ability group. This depends on the availability of coaches as most race themselves.
Slalom is the competition side of the club. We have a range of boats and paddles for you to try out so no need to buy equipment straight away. The Slalom coaches, coach paddlers all year round so we insist on a standing order of £16 per month being set up as well as club membership be taken out so we can plan our coaches to the number of paddlers expected. Water fees must be paid at the white water reception. A season pass may be purchased with a club discount being given.
All of our Slalom coaching team have vast experience of the course at HPP so they will be able to help you progress your confidence,skills and racing lines.
HPPCC have races at all levels of competition from Division 4 to paddling for GB at various age rangers. We also have a vast number of our racers on various GB squads.
As a club we enter a team into the national inter clubs competition as well as running a Premier and Div 1 race at HPP. This years race is over the weekend of the 2nd Prem and 3rd div1 of September. We also have an end of season/Christmas bash to award a variety of prizes. This is a fun night for all with a recap of the good the bad and the plain ugly events of the last year. Paddlers and parents are invited to send in video clips or photographs of the paddlers for a short film.
