Colorado Whitewater (CW) is an all-volunteer organization that promotes the sport of whitewater kayaking in the Rocky Mountain Region. We introduce new kayakers to whitewater, teach paddling techniques, promote and teach whitewater safety, and support racing and freestyle kayak competitions.
In addition, our mission is to inform the public about river access, conservation, and other general issues concerning rivers and wilderness, while working to resolve problems related to those issues.

ACA Swiftwater Rescue Clinics
Somewhere, at sometime, you will wish you knew what to do in a river emergency. Just rescuing gear can turn into a nightmare, never mind rescuing a person. Quick response time and the knowledge to set up a rescue safely are skills you should have as a boater. Make this the year to bring your rescue skills to a higher level. Kayakers must be of Class II-III ability. This clinic qualifies as an ACA sanctioned course. Learn more >
