Twice a month (or by appointment) you can join our team of ACA Certified Instructors for a swimming pool session to work on paddlesport skills and refine adaptive equipment outfitting. Pool sessions are the perfect opportunity to develop the skills needed to safely join one of our kayak or canoe day-trips.
Skills we can work on in the pool include: fitting life jackets (PFDs), basic water-safety, swimming, wet exits from kayaks and canoes, re-entering paddlecraft from the water, assisted rescues, self rescues, strokes and maneuvers and lots of other fun exercises. Pool sessions also offer seasoned paddlers an opportunity to refine more advanced skills.
These 2 to 3 hour sessions are free for anyone with a physical and / or sensory disability. All others are welcome to join us for a small donation.
Most pool sessions conclude with an optional and informal group dinner or other social event.
