Canoe Slalom Success

Canoe Slalom Success

Congratulations to Aicha Masrour (Y8) who competed in a few Canoe Slalom competitions over the summer and was 1st in the UK National Women’s ranking in Division 3 Slalom. After a tough competition last weekend in Cardington with 180 competitors, she has been promoted to Division 2, after coming 3rd.

This is an amazing achievement as she has trained hard over last winter and this year and has moved from Division 4 into Division 2 in just over 1 year! It is an amazing sport that she enjoys greatly and she sets her own goals and targets, although it is very much a supportive sport towards others too. Aicha is a member of Frome Canoe Club where she has been the youth helper through the summer supporting younger and new young paddlers into the sport and helping the adult coach with rescues. She has been told that she would make a very good coach in the future!

Frome Canoe Club is based at Market Yard in the centre of Frome next to the Cheese & Grain and meets weekly for training sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings between 7pm and 9pm during the spring and summer months.  The club organise amazing river trips throughout the winter, weekends away, fun slalom as tasters, barbecues, fun on the river, Halloween parties and night paddles plus much much more!
