Rowing, Canoeing & Kayaking Satellite Clubs in Birmingham

Satellite Clubs are community based clubs that feed into the main regional club for example we run a satellite club in Kings Norton with the purpose of feeding the main club in Birmingham (Birmingham Rowing or Birmingham Canoe Clubs). We have set up many indoor rowing satellite clubs across Birmingham and this program is being followed with canoeing and kayaking satellite clubs.

We are the chosen delivery partner for Birmingham City Council’s Active Parks program. We deliver free weekly sessions in local parks throughout the summer in both canoeing and rowing.

Much of our delivery is aimed towards growing the City’s main clubs and this is core to much of the development work we undertake. We work closely with many organisations including Sport England, Sport Birmingham, Birmingham City Council and many more organisations.
