3/12/2020: In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Meyers pool has closed at least until April 5. 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. At this time we are planning for Training Camp to be held as scheduled. 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.

This page will be updated by April 1, 2020

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.

2020 Colorado Whitewater Kids Paddling Team

This series of classes is intended for youth, ages 8-17, and will provide a progression of skills designed to develop safe, strong and confident white water paddlers. This class is suitable for the brand new, intermediate and advanced youth kayakers. Kids will learn about boats, essential gear, paddle strokes, river safety, rolling and bracing, play boating and more. The focus will be on SAFE, FUN boating. Participants will need parental approval.  CW has a limited amount of equipment that can be made available for student use.

Prerequisites: None

Cost: $180 for the course.

Note: There will be an open pool session running concurrently with the Kids Team so that parents can hone their kayak skills at the same time as the kids. The pool entry fee will be $10.50 per session for kids and parents.
