Below is a list of sports clubs and organisations involved:
Fife Canoe Activities Group
Fife Canoeing Activities Group (FCAG) is an active, friendly club and is open to anyone who wishes to participate in paddle sport. We have around 80 members with a wide range of abilities.
The club has interests in placid water kayaking, white-water kayaking, playboating, canoe polo and slalom, open boating and sea kayaking.
We have a good skill-training program, encouraging all to participate in the BCU star tests and BCU coaching scheme. The club runs weekly river trips, evening pool sessions during the winter and loch sessions in the summer on Tuesday evenings. FCAG hold introduction river trips for members wishing progress onto white-water during the summer months.
FCAG hold various social events throughout the year for members, family and friends.
The club was formed in June 2012 and is affiliated to RYA Sailability Scotland who have supplied the boats. The club is independent and self financing by membership fees. Based at Lochore Meadows which is a UK Sailability Centre of Excellence and therefore offers all the facilities required for a club of this nature to operate successfully and with the specially designed Challenger dinghy and an excellent core of volunteer instructors and sailing buddy’s the club is growing from strength to strength. Virtually all disabilities can be catered for from the age of 8 to 80 and beyond. The disabled sailors are encouraged to participate to maximise their abilities in sailing their boats. The club which is the only one of its kind in Scotland offers sessions on alternative Saturdays starting at 10 and finishing at 4. The fun and freedom is free apart from a fee paid to Fife council.
