Welcome to Colorado Whitewater

Are you just getting started with whitewater kayaking and looking for a great way to start running rivers? Or perhaps you're an experienced paddler who'd like to meet local boaters and give something back to the Colorado whitewater community?

Then come see what we're all about!


3/29/2020: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have suspended all enrollment in Colorado Whitewater pool classes as we monitor the situation. Students who have already registered and paid for classes will receive additional communication via email. We do not know, at this time, how the remainder of the pool season will be affected. Training Camp has also been cancelled. Please monitor your email, the Colorado Whitewater Facebook page, and this website for additional details. If you have any questions, please direct them to our Instruction Director. Please understand that responses may be slower than normal as we are an all-volunteer organization.

For additional information on how to keep yourself and your loved ones safe, please reference the CDC, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE), and your local health department.
