Dragon Paddlers are a canoe and kayak club that is run by families for families.

The club has all of the gear that any new participant of any age would need to get started.

We run a weekly session at Fitzallan School pool starting at 9:30 running until 11:00.

Everyone is welcome of any age (1 year – 80 years), whether coming to just give it a try, or to learn new skills.

As well as running pool sessions we also run sessions down at the white water center in Cardiff, on local rivers, on the sea and at local venues such as Cosmeston to suit paddlers of all levels.

We also run annual trips to Dartmoor and Bala, where we camp and chat as well as just paddle.

The club has many experienced coaches, and we are always looking to develop our members either through the coaching pathway or if they wish to just develop personally through the star awards.

We feel that our main focus is on involvement, so if you are a parent bringing along children then expect to get wet, hold a rope, or help out in some way.

The main committee members are at the pool most sessions so feel free to come along and meet with:

Chairman:  Steve Hyde

Secretary:  Phil Davies

Training Officer:  Matt Maguire

Training Officer:  Aled Jones

Finance Officer:  Les Jones
