Bring your sister, mother, friend or teenaged daughter!! This FREE (with club- membership) women-only program is designed to teach women and girls the basics of on-water safety, how to exit the kayak if you flip over, how to paddle forwards in a straight line and steer using different paddle strokes. Learn together in a fun social, safe environment!! This is a 1 hour lesson 4.30-5.30pm on the water. 

 

Membership required! In addition to registering here for the lessons (free) please also register as a club member by following this link: CCECanoeKayak.rampregistrations.com [NOTE: RAMP is a different registration platform from Sportical, you will need to make a new account]

 

All paddling equipment (kayak, PFD, paddle) will be provided at the CCE boathouse, but you are welcome to bring your own.

After your lessons you can join our free meet-up paddling group or our WOW! social drop-in instructor-led paddles at Cultus Lake though July and August!! https://chilliwackcentreofexcellence.sportical.com/events?search=&category_id=69
