We encourage all Club members to Join British Canoeing as individual members so they can become part of the “British Canoeing Family” and support the work of British Canoeing.
As a BC Affiliated club We are covered by BC Indemnity Insurance, we can seek support from the BC’s when required; plus :-
- We are supported by the BC through our membership of BC’s London Region.
- We can seek support from the different departments within BC, .e.g.:-
- the Safeguarding team,
- the Access campaign,
- the Personal Performance Awards,
- the Coaching team etc.
- See below for more details:-
We provide a number of BC courses so our members can achieve various BC Personal Performance Awards (PPA). This also supports the BC’s campaign to promote “Long Term Paddler Development” and encourage members to develop their paddlesport skills.
We adopt many of the BC Policies and Procedures which the BC have developed to ensure all paddlesport activities, within the Club are organised in an efficient, safe and equitable manner.
Therefore the structure and running of the Club is heavily influenced by BC.
