Paddle sports Instructor Staff Sergeant Donna Nixon secured places with Doncaster Paddle Sports for C Company Cadets to have a taster session of Kayaking at the local swimming pool.


Aiming for adventure training at one star, Cadets have actively been encouraged to take part. So far Doncaster and Corps of Drums Detachments have been and this week was Mexborough Detachments turn, with each Detachment from C Company taking a turn weekly. Cadets were first fitted for their Kayaks and equipment and then it was straight into the pool.


Cadets were then taught proper use of paddles and had a go practicing. After having learnt how to safely leave a Kayak, Cadets, then went on to have quite a competitive game of pool football. The night went all too quickly, but all the Cadets left grinning from Ear to Ear and will most definitely want to do it again.
