Join the club!

We always welcome new members through-out the year regardless of age or ability. We operate a non-discriminatory membership policy – any person who undertakes to behave in the best interest of canoeing can join the club.

Over the last few years there has been a rapid growth in paddlesport, which has benefited our club, with large numbers of new enquiries from paddlers of all abilities. We will always try to get you on the water as soon and safely as possible.
If you would like to become a member, your first step is to contact us, giving us as much information as you can. We will then deal with your enquiry as efficiently as we can. Or pop down to one of our regular pool sessions for a chat.

Our club’s membership includes 

Access to all our pool sessions at the member rate of £5 per pool session.

Covered by the club’s River Chelmer licences to paddle the River Chelmer.
Note: we realise it’s a cheaper alternative to buying an annual licence direct, however, please note that licences will only be issued to those who want to be an active part of the club.
(Note, The Chelmer & Blackwater navigation is a private waterway and is not covered under British Canoeing membership)

Access to qualified British Canoeing coaches and leaders who will help you feel comfortable on the water and also help you progress you skills and techniques.

10% off purchases at Nucleus Watersports (https://shop.canoes2go.co.uk)

*Children under the age of 11 years may join as part of a family membership. Our club rules state that for under 11s to paddle in a club session, they must be accompanied on the water by a parent/guardian who is a reasonably competent paddler. For safety reasons, children under the age of 8 are allowed at pool sessions and on some flat water trips if approved by Safety officer/committee.

Members are encouraged to tell the instructor or trip leader of any health issues or allergies which may affect you whilst canoeing/kayaking. This should be done before you go afloat. Your Instructor is obliged to ask all members of their group for this information.

Completed Membership forms can be posted to MCC Treasurer, 4 The Orchard, Maldon, Essex CM9 4UN or handed in to a committee member at one of our pool sessions or emailed to info@maldoncanoeclub.co.uk

I started out kayaking on the sea, but was invited along to try white water with one of the clubs level 3 coaches at Lee Valley. I was hooked from the first session, even though I spent more time out of the boat than in it.
