I also offer kayaking or SUP as part of the skills or physical sections for the awards. Activities need to average an hour a week, with the first and last sessions being the full section duration apart. The timescales for each level of award are:-

Silver – For ages 15 and over. One section 6 months, the other section 3 months.
Gold – For ages 16 and over. One section 12 months, the other section 6 months.
