This 6 week (12 lessons) course is suitable for beginners aged 10-14 who want to learn to kayak. We start on flatwater and progress to whitewater kayaking and slalom racing, with a fun community slalom race at the end of the program. Paddling slalom gates is a great way to improve paddling skills in a safe environment and it’s lots of fun.
On the last day of the course JUNE 26th we will hold a COOKIE RACE (Bring a dozen cookies: choose favourite cookies to take home based on race time). Race will be held at Cedarwal Farms slalom site.
All equipment provided (kayak, helmet, paddle, PFD, spray skirt)
Safety is our #1 priority - there will be a maximum student: instructor ratio of 4:1 on the river. All river paddles are weather, skills and water-level dependent.
