The Derwent Canoe Club is a canoe sport and recreational canoeing club based in Hobart. The Club has been active across all areas of canoeing for the last 40 years.

Paddle Power is a kayaking program aimed at introducing paddlers (primarily juniors 10-14yrs old) to the sport in a fun way and setting them up for success.  The program will involve 8 sessions of paddling and will introduce basic skills, safety and exploring waterways.

Whilst it is not intended that children will be swimming, it is possible that they may fall in and need to be prepared to get wet and be able to swim 25m.

For pics and videos, please visit the DCC Paddle Power Face book page – a closed group open to DCC Paddle Power participants and families.
