Level 1: Introduction to Kayaking Skills Course

Columbia, TN, USA

Jump Start your paddling season. Learn to kayak or improve your kayaking skills this winter while dreaming of warm summer paddling.

This is an indoor class utilizing the pool at Muletown Rec in Columbia, TN. The first half of the session is classroom based and will cover these and other topics: PFDs (lifejackets), safety equipment, weather/water considerations, and trip planning. The second half of the session is in the pool with a focus on strokes and self-rescue. Enjoy the clean, clear water and controlled environment of learning these kayaking skills in a pool.

All our classes use a challenge by choice philosophy so if you are not comfortable getting in the water or practicing a particular skill just let your instructor know.

Cost of Class: $100 per person. This includes classroom instruction, kayaks for the pool session, use of the pool for the class, and pool instruction. Lunch is not provided.

What to Bring and Wear:
