We've been paddling for nearly 20 years now! We must be having fun!
We love it when we can get new people paddling!
EEKCC is a very friendly club and we have a big range of ages and abilities. Our members paddle kayaks, canoes and sea kayaks. We paddle on local rivers and lochs as well as on the sea. We often have weekends away to get to more remote spots. Whether you are a complete beginner who has never paddled before or you are an old hand, we'd love to meet you.
EEKCC is affiliated to the Scottish Canoe Association (affiliation number 6096). We are a child protection aware club and we abide by the SCA guidelines for the protection of children.
We have a selection of kit that members can use if they don't have their own - this is very useful for those just starting out. We can kit you out with just about everything you need apart from footwear and a wet suit. We even have a range of boats!
In the summer months (May to early September) we have our regular Friday night sessions at the James Hamilton Heritage Park in East Kilbride. The rest of the year finds us in the warmer climes of the Water Palace in Hamilton. If you'd like to come along, please see here for when we meet and do let us know you're coming along so we can make you welcome! You are welcome to participate in 3 loch or pool sessions before you have to join. Membership forms can be obtained from the Secretary.
Apart from paddling for fun, we also have an active team of coaches who run regular coaching sessions, courses and assessments. We don't just do stuff on the water as we have a social side to us too - BBQs, trips to the climbing wall and 10 pin bowling are just some of the things we've been up to.
Isn't it about time you joined EEKCC?
