2018 Spring After School Kayaking: Spring session begins Monday, May 7th, 2018 and runs for 6 weeks. Middle and High School students can easily learn the skills needed to enjoy the beautiful and exciting Potomac River. We pick students up from Westland, Washington Waldorf School, Pyle, and Whitman after school and drop them off at 6:30 pm at Whitman, 6:20 at WWS. Your student will find his or herself open to the many challenges and adventures in the sport of kayaking that become possible as their skills progress.

Total beginners will be introduced to flat and moving water sections of the Potomac River. Students will learn directional control of your boat, how to navigate current, how to roll, and safety awareness and rescue skills.

Slalom Club

We are excited to offer a new fleet of slalom boats along with expert instruction! Train for speed, fitness, or fun! Taught by Olympian, Ashley Nee, this is a great way to get stoked on slalom.

Slalom Tuesdays are open for beginner paddlers and those with more experience. Meet in Brookmont, MD at 4 pm. Pick up at 6 pm.

Slalom Thursdays are open to paddlers with a roll who want to push their skills through slalom.

Commando Unit is only offered in Fall.
