Getting a roll down is key for kids to become better kayakers, instilling in them more confidence in their abilities, and taking them on a lifetime of fun adventures!
Winter is an ideal time to learn and practice your basic boating skills – in the security and comfort of a heated swimming pool! You can start as a beginner and find absolute confidence in your roll this winter. Learning to roll is a great for total beginners while youth from After School Kayaking and other programs can get ready for spring paddling. When you know your roll works you will be liberated and free to play on the river. We keep the cost low so you can practice at every session. More experienced paddlers can work on off side, hand rolls, bow stalls, and more! You should be a comfortable swimmer to enroll in this class.
