Unlock the Power of Outdoor Education

Outdoor education not only enriches children’s academic development but also enhances their mental health and well-being. Engaging in outdoor activities builds confidence, sharpens problem-solving skills, and proves invaluable in fostering resilience, particularly during challenging times.

At Salford Watersports Centre, we prioritise the safety and well-being of all participants. We are proud to hold an Adventure Activity Licence (AALA), ensuring high standards of safety and quality in outdoor activities. Additionally, we are accredited by the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and Paddle UK, reflecting our commitment to excellence in watersports education.

We are fully insured with both public and employer liability insurance, offering peace of mind for all our activities. Comprehensive risk assessments are conducted for all sessions and are available upon request.
