Creswick Youth Stand Up Paddleboarding enjoyed by all

On Monday April 8, 10 young people participated in Stand Up Paddleboarding at Calembeen Park in Creswick as a school holiday and Active April activity.

Sports Central partnered with Hepburn Shire Council and Stillwater Paddles to deliver the program as a pilot for young people in Creswick.

Participants were guided step by step with the skills to safely and competently learn to Stand Up Paddleboard, progressing from laying down, the kneeling and finally to the standing position.

Young people thoroughly enjoyed the session and the opportunity to try a new water activity in their community. Positive feedback has resulted in discussions to return and grow the program in warmer months to Creswick.
