Welcome to Crewe and Nantwich Canoe Club – CNCC.
We are OPEN! We are a friendly, inclusive and fun-loving club based in Nantwich, Cheshire. We have an active membership ranging from beginners, to Div 1 Slalom kayakers, sailing canoeists, white water paddlers, sea kayakers and canoeists.
We offer a varied range of activities throughout the year – including:
- Regular river trips,
- winter pool sessions (currently unavailable due to a lack of pool access),
- BC personal performance awards – training and assessment,
- safety courses,
- summer camps and
- social events.
We are fortunate to be supported by our group of ‘management’ volunteers who ensure that the club is running smoothly. We have a large pool of volunteer coaches and leaders who have a wealth of experience and all have National Governing Body coaching and leading qualifications as well as first aid and rescue qualifications. We are a British Canoeing affiliated club.
Crewe and Nantwich Canoe Club meets on a Wednesday Evening from 6:30 pm to 9 pm approx. We meet at various river locations and every two weeks we have an optional training session at Trentham Lake.
Winter and Summer Sessions
- We are currently unable to run pool sessions due to a lack of pool facilities. However when we find a new pool, our sessions will run again from November – May. They are ideal for roll practice and learning skills.
- Our summer sessions run from May – September, these include lake sessions at Trentham Lake (Currently closed due to blue / green algae – cyanobacteria) ; moving water sessions and canal-based sessions.
Introduction to kayaking
CNCC can introduce you to kayaking on the lake at Trentham and during our weekly river sessions. You will gain some basic skills to start paddling on moving water. Remember, CNCC is primarily a moving water club and not a lake club so the aim will always be to get you on moving water in the shortest possible time!
