COVID-19 update: safety is our number one concern. All equipment is disinfected between participants and social distancing will be practiced on the water except where it would be unsafe to do so for emergency management.

LEVEL 2 Intermediate: You are comfortable with basic wet exits and T-rescues and have started to develop your roll.
