Congratulations to Alan, Dave, Elliot, Fran, Frankie, Stephen and Tammy who all passed their British Canoeing 2 Star Award and to Nick who passed his 1 Star Award at the club this weekend. Thanks to coaches Graeme and Simon for giving up their time to deliver the courses. Here you can see lots of great action shots to prove everyone got wet!

Confirmation that Trentham Canoe Club are the North West Hasler Series CHAMPIONS for 2017 and, along with runners up Macclesfield & District Canoe Club, will compete in the Hasler Finals at Richmond next month.
The Hasler Trophy is the National Team League Championships for marathon canoeing. Clubs compete within their regions throughout the season to win the right to race at the Hasler Final, held in September each year.
The Hasler Series is named after Herbert “Blondie” Hasler, who led Operation Frankton, a WW2 commando raid in double kayaks on the port of Bordeaux. The story of this raid was made into a 1955 film, The Cockleshell Heroes.
HUGE congratulations to everyone who has raced for TCC this year and good luck in the finals!
Saturday August 19th (9:30am - 4:00pm)
Open to anyone who is interested in completing their 2 star award whether you are ready or not! :) If you are ready you will get your 2 star and if not you will get feedback.
This will be a full day with a lunch break and getting wet for the last hour. You will need lunch, paddling kit and a change of clothes.
I'm also happy to give some coaching feedback so if any other coaches or aspiring coaches would like to join you can come along and I will be happy to let you help participants and give any feedback I can.
Message me to tell me you are attending, whether you are ready or just wanting feedback or if you are a coach/ aspiring coach.
Hopefully we can get lots down for the day.
