If you are over 11 then you are welcome to join YCC, but for safety reasons we encourage a parent/guardian to accompany you to each session. Under 16’s MUST be accompanied by an adult for at least their first session and must complete a junior consent form for club trips.
At the committee’s discretion under 11’s can join the club and participate in Wednesday night club sessions. To be eligible a member under 11 years old would need to be accompanied by an experienced paddler (also a member) who would stay with them on the water and take responsibility for them for the entirety of the session.
We have three Junior Representatives on the committee, Joe, Charlie and Rosie. If you have any questions, see them at one of the Wednesday sessions.
York Canoe Club follows BCU guidelines on child protection. We have a child protection policy and two Welfare Officers, Pete Ingham and Rob Sheard, who will deal with child protection and harassment issues.
If you need any more information why not catch us at the pool, on the river or in the pub every Wednesday night. Alternatively visit our contact us page for details how to get in touch.
