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, Pyle, and Whitman after school and drop them off at 6:30 pm at Whitman. 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.

More advanced paddlers can register for Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will integrate some slalom workouts into the advanced sessions.

Commando Unit is only offered in Fall.
