Contact Information:

West Yorkshire Canoe Club is affiliated to the British Canoe Union (BCU).
 
We are a family canoe and kayaking club, founded in 1955, and based in and around Wakefield in West Yorkshire.
 
Club membership is drawn from a wide geographical area and reflects the broad appeal of the Club’s services and events, catering for a variety of interests including canoe polo, slalom, play boating, sea surfing, wild water racing, whitewater touring and recreation.
 
We provide coaching from basic paddling skills taught in the pool and lake and move quickly onto the skills required to paddle white water.
 
The club organises lots of river trips all year round, ranging from gentle flat-water paddles along the River Ouse for beginners up to advanced white water such as the River Tryweryn for the more experienced.
 
As well as running river trips, organised events such as the Washburn Weekend & West Tanfield Family Weekend are held along with holidays for our members such as the club trip to Ilfracombe in Devon every summer and the Sandsend Surfing weekend.
