All of these sessions are free.
These sessions focus on:
- Safe practice when using the water
- Provide information of the effects of cold water
- Provide basic safety messages relating to your sport and water usage
Sport NI are running a series of free Watersports Safety Sessions under a new project called GET WET Stay Safe across Northern Ireland from June – September. These sessions have been developed to ensure that as we approach the summer months when use of the water is at its highest, that water users are well-informed and can safely use the natural environment to enjoy their specific sports.
We can supply equipment for you at the training or you are very welcome to bring your own. If you do require equipment, it is important that we know what you need, so please answer the question relating to equipment when registering.
These sessions are primarily intended for Stand-Up Paddleboarders and Sit-On-Top Kayakers. All our tutors are fully qualified and are accredited by the Canoe Association of Northern Ireland. These sessions are for adults only (18+) as they are specific safety training, and are not suitable for anyone under 18.
