WHITE WATER RAFTING DAY:

 

Not just for sporty parents but for daring parents. This is the awesome thrill-seeking opportunity to go white water rafting down the Olympic Course at Lee Valley; the scene of the 2012 medal rush for the GB Canoeists. Nicknamed ‘Tough Rudder’ by the gold medal GB Canoeists themselves, this experience sees you taking on the Olympic course.

 

Our school is looking for rafts of eight parents to represent us in the Sporty Parents Tough Rudder. The experience starts with a guide to the course from one of the two GB Slalom Canoeists who won gold on the course in 2012, each rafter gets a signed photo of them and the gold medalist, as well as a host of action shots from the day to populate their social media feeds.

 

Then for two hours you are in the hands of the rafting guides and after going through safety drills you have a host of runs down the course during 75 minutes of rapid action. The timed runs will determine our Sporty Parents Tough Rudder champions you even get to have medals given to you by an actual canoeing gold medalist.

 

To participate, you must be a competent swimmer AND less than 18 stone. Additional guests are welcome to watch and listen to proceedings. There will be child friendly activities being run by the centre on the day, full details to follow.
