Pricing Strategy

At the Canoe Sports Trust we pride ourselves in providing you a quality product. We recognise the benefits of giving you access to excellent facilities, good equipment, and the best instruction.

Activity Costs 2022

Our charges generally apply to 90 minute activity sessions but the rates applicable vary depending on the organisation booking the activity.

All activity bookings are based upon the requirement placed on us by the regulator to operate within strict instructor to participant ratios which means the group size with any one instructor is 8 people, therefore to obtain the best efficiencies when making bookings, we encourage you to organise participants in to multiples of 8.

Please note that a group of 8 can not accommodate a 9th person and by way of an example; if you have 12 people they need to be divided in to two groups each led by a separate instructor. The charge applicable would be for two groups with the per head cost rising accordingly.
