Youth Level 3: Advanced River Maneuvering
Our youth level 3 class is designed for kids who have worked on the fundamentals of kayaking and are ready to put their skills to the test! Kids will also be able to try some more advanced kayaking skills such as jet ferries, surfing and combat rolling, in addition to perfecting their fundamentals.
Day 1 will begin a class on river hydrology, and how to perform basic safety on the river. Then we can distribute gear, load up and head to the river! We will start with a section that allows us to work on our fundamentals, run some moderate rapids, and use every eddy as an opportunity to learn!
As we move downstream, we can start introducing some more difficult skills such as surfing waves, and controlling our edges in moving water.
Later in the week we can use our on site pool to dial in our rolls. This will provide solid fundamentals to begin attempting combat rolls! By the end of the week, we hope to have solid class 2 fundamentals, and give participants the skills to begin working towards running class 3. All necessary gear, transportation, and lunches are provided.
The Southwest can have very sudden and unpredictable changes in weather. All classes run rain or shine, unless there are weather related safety concerns. All programs may be changed at our discretion.To keep our classes affordable, we must fill a program with a minimum amount of participants. We reserve the right to cancel the program if the minimum amount of participants is not met. A full refund will be provided if a class is cancelled, and you will be notified no later than 48 hours before the beginning of the class.
If you need to reschedule or cancel your reservation, please do so 48 hours or more before the beginning of the class. Cancellations within 48 hours of the beginning of the program are non- refundable. If you wish to reschedule within 48 hours before the beginning of the program, we can provide a 50% credit towards the rescheduled class.
