Thank you for your interest in Aboyne Canoe Club. The club has developed since May 2004 and continues to develop. If you are an established paddler, join us straight away. If you are a complete novice, we might advise that you join pool sessions at Aboyne Community Centre Swimming Pool which run from October – April. There are six key documents to have a look at:
The Club Programme - This gives an idea of the sort of events we have planned in the months to come, have a look at this as it gives a good idea of the kind of rivers and grades we head for.
The Club By-Laws, that evolves as the club grows older. It gives a good idea of the way the club conducts its self whilst on canoe events and how we look after each other.
Code of Conduct is a list of Do's and Dont's for the club. A fairly detailed document but now required by the Scottish Canoe Association (SCA). It sets out a Code of Behaviour when attending club events.
The Club Constitution is a requirement of any club who require recognition by the National governing Body. It builds on the ideas in the By-Laws and helps to give an overall picture of the priorities and values of the club.
Club Membership Application Form - If after looking at the above you feel the club is something you wish to be part of then please complete and send in the form with membership fee. If you are unsure be reminded that you can come along on a couple of club trips to see who’s who and what’s what (there will be a charge for Community Centre pool sessions).
