A Very Chilly Hurley Classic 2018!

A fantastic weekend away with some of the #Croesykids at the Hurley Classic, where the kids got to paddle with and be coached by World Champions, who were taking time to nurture the next generation of freestyle paddlers.
Highlights including the ‘Dream Team’ of Ben, Owen, and Oliver, by far the youngest competitors with a combined age less than the majority of individual paddlers, competing on a floodlight wave, which was being live broadcast during a blizzard, with temperatures as low as -9°! They’re a very hardy bunch of kids!
Congratulations to Ben for winning the Cadet class of the main event.
Despite the freezing conditions a thoroughly enjoyable weekend of kayaking, camping and competition.

Success at the CIWW Raft Race Series 2018 for #TeamCroesy

Another fun filled Friday for #teamcroesy at Cardiff International White Water for the final event of the raft race series. The race involved both sprint, and head to head battles. Despite the freezing temperatures #teamcroesy achieved a tremendous second place, and earned entry into the British rafting series later on this year (in the warm weather!). Looks like there’s more of this to come!

 If anyone is interested in joining in the fun, come andspeak to us at the pool.

The third training day of the Junior Development Programme is to be held at Taff Bargoed Lake on the 29th April 2018.

The primary aim of the day is to promote and develop junior canoe polo for paddlers who are in Year 9 or below, but the event is open to all under 18 paddlers.

The  ambition is to reform the Welsh Junior polo league and to select a Junior Welsh team to compete in a European tournament in 2019.

This is the first in a series of outdoors events to be held through the warmer months. Further dates to be confirmed.

Pease come and speak to Bleddyn or Dave at the pool for more info and download further information and a consent form here:  Download
