COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Teen 5 day program is a full week of paddling instruction for teens from ages 13 - 18.

GOALS

The aim of this program is to introduce participants to the world of whitewater kayaking in a safe and fun manner.  The progression of this course starts working on the fundamental flatwater skills building all the way up to a fun/challenging Class II+/III whitewater run on the Friday.  The course structure focuses on solid skill development at all stages, along with basic river safety and rescue concepts.  Our goal is to instil a passion for paddling with a focus on fun and most of all safety in all paddlers.

OUTCOMES

After completing this course participants can expect to have a good understanding of river paddling concepts and to have experienced some class II/III- rapids in a safe and well managed environment.  After this course, paddlers will be ready to join our first year Junior Development program along with attend a number of Alberta Whitewater Association events with us and/or to join a local whitewater kayaking club to further their skills and time on the water.
