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.
