Alva Classes

Please indicate if you would like to attend any Tuesday or Saturday Alva classes using the doodle polls below

Alva – December 2019

Alva- January and February 2020



Tuesday classes take place all year round.  The first Tuesday class will be split into 2 groups with the J2 and Squad paddlers attending the first session doing the same as those at the second session.  This will hopefully balance the paddlers better across the 2 sessions.

Tuesday class 5:15 – 6:30 for Paddlepower, J1 and J2 and Squad paddlers
Tuesday class 6:30 – 7:45 for Squad and J2 paddlers



Saturday classes  from 10:00 – 11:30 and 2:00 – 3:30 will continue running during the winter depending on the weather.

These are technical sessions with Janet for any Paddlepower, J1 and Adults that would like to attend.



Pinkston Classes

Please indicate which Pinkston Thursday sessions you plan to attend using the doodle polls at the bottom of this page.

To join in with the CR CATS Pinkston sessions on a regular basis, you need to be a full or associate member of CR CATS.


The session cost per paddler is Water £6 and coaching £2.  These sessions are run to break even for the water fees.  We, therefore, need about 12 people to cover the pump costs for an hour and about 18 people to cover the pump cost for 1.5 hours.


The Session Times are

  • Standard :  18:30 – 20:00
  • Reduced     19:00 – 20:00
  • Extended    18:00 – 19:00 and 19:00 – 20:00

The latest session times will be shown in the blurb at the top of each doodle poll.  We will try to send out an e-mail if the time changes.
