This introductory class provides a safe, gentle introduction into the world of whitewater kayaking. The class progresses through topics over the course of three sessions in the warm pool and concludes in early May by applying the same skills outside on a lake and an easy river (Flat Water/Moving Water Weekend). This progression over the course of 5 days allows you to comfortably build on your skills and gain confidence by the time you kayak a river for the first time.

The beginner curriculum is based on well-established ACA standards that assume no previous experience in a kayak. You will learn about boats, essential gear, basic paddle strokes, river safety, and we'll introduce you to the kayak roll.

This is class one of three plus the Flatwater/Moving Water Weekend. The other dates for this class & group are Feb. 2, Feb. 9 and the Flatwater/Moving Water Weekend on May 10 & 11.

Prerequisites: None

Cost:  $180 course fee plus $9.25 pool admission for each pool session. Includes three 2-hour pool sessions, the flat-water/moving water weekend and rental equipment (boat, spray skirt, and paddle) for the three pool sessions.

Instructors:  Pat Brown & Mark Robbins
