Paddlers wishing to use our whitewater course unsupervised must have BCU 3 Star or relevant paddling experience on grade 2/3 water and be able to make break outs or ferry glide in order to stop or slow themselves down. If you do not yet meet these requirements then you may paddle the course as part of a group, supervised by a group leader who must have BCU L3, UKCC L2 + MWE, or equivalent, in the relevant discipline.

All paddlers are required to complete the necessary paperwork and bring it with them on their first visit each year. Please see below for links to these documents:


Download and complete the Medical Consent Form and the Safety & Risk Declaration and hand into reception on your next visit.


Download and complete the Medical Consent Form and the Acknowledgement of Risk for SUPERVISED Paddlers and give these forms to your GROUP LEADER to check over.


Please first register as an unsupervised paddler by completing, and handing in, the forms above on your first visit. You will then need to download and complete the Group Singing In Sheet with each group you lead throughout the year. This form must be completed for each visit even if the group remains the same.
