We will be offering kayak pool clinics to give paddlers a chance to work on and further develop their paddling, rescue and rolling skills in the comfort of a warm pool. This is a great opportunity to work on water confidence and build on skills such as wet exits, assisted and unassisted rescues, edging and bracing, support strokes and the progression towards a roll. We understand that not everyone is able to make multiple sessions; however, we have found those that are able to attend multiple sessions are able to build on successes from session to session. We are aware that some folks may not have access to a kayak, let us know, we have a few kayaks and gear available for rental.
We have four dates available for 2019 and there are two options. For each of the dates below you can choose to work on either water confidence and rescues or you can select rolling progression. Details on each of these sessions is below:
Location – All sessions at Bell Aliant Center, Charlottetown
