Bray Lake Watersports have been safely introducing young people to the thrill and excitement of watersports for over 35 years, either through organised school trips or via a range of courses offered during the school holidays. Choose from a short two hour skill session up to a full day of mixed water sport activities.
Whether a school trip is an end of term treat or a series of classes leading to recognised National Governing Body qualifications, watersports has something for everyone. In our experience the schools who have visited us before, return again and again, simply because the children (and the teachers) love the experience; undoubtedly a trip to Bray Lake will be the talk of the playground. While residential courses can seem an attractive proposition, by visiting a local facility, such as Bray Lake, there is the opportunity for your pupils to return to us individually to pursue the watersport that has inspired them most.
Bray Lake Watersports openly encourages the participation of young people in watersports at all levels through our junior and school programme, our After-School Club and through the sponsorship of local aspiring racers.
Many of our instructors and staff have found their future vocation after being introduced to the thrill of watersports at Bray Lake. Who knows, that first school visit to Bray Lake may be the start of something new and exciting for one of your pupils.
Our system of teaching young people has been designed and developed to pass on skills and techniques in a fun and informal format. All our instructors are highly trained with Nation Governing Body qualifications and under pinned with regular in-house training to highlight specific issues and operational requirements relevant to Bray Lake and our School and Junior programme.
There is the option for multi activity days and half days or single skills sessions for school groups wishing to concentrate on individual sports and work towards National Governing Body (NGB) certificates of competence i.e Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and British Canoe (BC) awards. In addition, we can cover GCSE or NVQ syllabus and/or Duke of Edinburgh Awards. Please do not hesitate to contact the Centre to discuss your requirement.
