Southampton City District are very fortunate to have teams of very well qualified leaders who on top of their main scouting commitments also offer great support for a wide range of additional adventurous activities.

We have Shaun Cassidy and Anthony Wilkinson who are the archery instructors and we have Andy Clasby and Gary Skeats who provide shooting for the district.

The district also has its own hill walking and mountaineering team led by Ian Rutherford who has a wealth of experience in this area.

We have our own water based canoe club run very well by Gary Prince as the Club Captain and his great team of qualified instructors.

Further details of these activities are available here and I would encourage you to make good use of them.
The district team also organise a number of district competitions throughout the year which make very good use of this expertise.
