As part of our commitment to social upliftment in the area we have been running a junior development paddling program for disadvantaged kids on the West Coast.  Since 2005 we have been working closely with local schools Jurie Hayes Secondary and Langebaan Primary, we have trained more than 100 kids from the ages of 6 – 16 in the basics of water safety and paddling from the word go right up to competitive level.  This program is run alongside our junior coaching program where children that can afford the cost of tuition join in and learn side-by-side with our development paddlers.
