Stratford-on-Avon Kayaks is a lively kayak and canoe club with over 100 members, based at Stratford Leisure Centre.

S.O.A.K. is made up of canoe and kayak enthusiasts of all ages and ability levels, with interests in all sorts of canoeing activities, including whitewater river-running, flat water canoeing, playboating, surfing, and sea kayaking. We are always keen to welcome new members, beginner or experienced alike.

Our aim is to create opportunities for members to enjoy their sport, and to provide them with the support they need to get the most out of it. We run a varied programme of events both locally and at popular paddling venues around the UK, with the aim of providing all members with the chance to practise their sport in a suitable environment.

Every Tuesday evening we meet at Stratford Leisure Centre, for a paddle on the River Avon in the summer, or to practise skills in the swimming pool in winter. Our qualified instructors can provide coaching leading to national qualifications administered by the British Canoe Union.

This web site gives you more details about what we do, and the coaching and events we can offer. If you are interested in finding out more, come along to Stratford Leisure Centre on a Tuesday evening, or get in touch with a committee member.
