Mental Toughness Class
If you can roll in the pool, but not on the river, this class is for you! The class is designed for kayakers who have basic paddling skills and can roll in the pool, but have difficulty translating their skills to the river. The class has proven successful in helping participants make the transition to more difficult moving water, develop a combat roll, and boost confidence on Class III whitewater. Participants will develop physical and mental skills and confidence to help improve their paddling on the river. Class activities include discussions, boat drills, weekly pool practice, river practice, and river trips.
In addition to the class activities, students will be expected to complete homework and participate in extra-curricular pool sessions and river trips. Please sign up for this course with the expectation that you will put in a substantial amount of time outside of the class to improve your skills and those of your classmates.
Pool Sessions: March 3, March 17, April 7; 3-5pmOn River*: Two river days to be determined at first pool session.
Cost: $130 course fee plus admission for each pool session. Includes three 2 hour pool sessions and river sessions.
