Practice Nights

If you want to get good at kayaking, you're going to have to practice. We make that easy by hosting FREE weekly practice sessions for our package students. These fun, structured, 2-hour sessions are coached by our top instructors and give students an opportunity to hone the skills they are learing in classes and develop paddling friendships. Practice is an essential part of any learning progression - make the necessary effort to be there, and be early! Here are the details on practice nights:

 

Beginner Whitewater Practice Sessions

- Every Wednesday and Thursday night from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM.

- People on the wait list usually make it into the session
- If you are registered for a session and can't make it, please remove yourself from the list at least 2 hours beforehand so others can get bumped off the wait list
