Junior River Trips 2016

The days are aimed at juniors who have been introduced to base skills in the sport already. The aim is to progress from level 2 skills up towards Level 3 skills and also introduce juniors to other disciplines within the sport. It is a great opportunity for some good quality training in a fun and relaxed environment.

How does it work?

Juniors will meet at our training centre in Lucan. From there you will be shuttled by minibus to the get in point of a river. River trips will take place mainly on the River Liffey but there will also be trips on the river Boyne, Inny, Barrow and Annamoe.

Note: Parents may need to help with lifts on some days but notice will be givenTrip times will vary to take into account travel time. Further away rivers will involve a longer day.
