Intro to whitewater kayaking
|Date||2019 Sep 20-Oct 26|
|Address||76 Pavillion Rd, Cultus Lake, BC|
This 6 week (7 sessions) course is targeted to teens and pre-teens who have already completed an introductory paddling course or camp on the lake and want to try whitewater (river) kayaking and/or slalom paddling. Did you know that slalom paddling is an excellent way to improve your paddling skills? And it's fun!!
We start on Cultus Lake in September (Friday 20th & 27th) then progress to the Chilliwack River for basic moving water skills. In October some lessons will be in our local slalom race course (October Fridays 4th, 11th, 19th PLUS Saturday 20th).
Safety is our #1 priority - there will be a maximum student: instructor ratio of 6:1 on the river, with two certified instructors, OR one instructor + 1 experienced safety boater on every river run with novice paddlers. All river paddles are weather and water-level dependent.
Please arrive 15 minutes early and ready to paddle.
