Join SKC


So you are considering becoming a member?  You should – it is really easy.

If you are already an experienced kayaker, just make contact with us and we will let you know when to turn up on a Club Night.  You can contact us through our Facebook page or get in touch with one of our committe members directly.  You can find out about our annual fees on the membership rates page and download our Membership Form (MS Word) (or PDF).

If you do not have the L2 Skills award, we can help you get that done.

Beginners Courses

If you are new to kayaking, you need to attend a Beginners Course either with SKC or an appropriately qualified instructor.  More information regarding our beginner courses is on our Beginner Course page.  Anyone interested can call Heather on (086) 390 1713 or hezabeza35 *AT*

Membership Form

For anyone joining as a member or beginner you will need to complete a Membership Form (Membership Form) and bring it with payment to your first session, or drop them off as requested by Heather.  Please note: All forms must be signed and submitted, to take part in club activities.

We would also recommend reading our club policy documents which contain important information about our club.

So why not come and join a very social Club.  No experience is required, just an ability to swim and to smile as you get wet!  We generally have more adult members that Junior, but welcome all ages 12 years and older and encourage families to get involved.  A wetsuit is recommended, but shorts and a t-shirt are fine, all other gear is provided.  The course fee covers all the lessons, Canoeing Ireland Level 2 assessment, gear rental for the duration of the course and club membership for one year.

After that you can come out on our club paddle sessions and it is just €5 a session for gear hire.  It’s a fun and cheap sport!  We paddle all through the winter too in the lakes and rivers and we learn new kayaking skills in the Regional swimming pool through until the Spring.
