This easy, and quick 4 week starter course is designed for you to learn what you need to run rivers, surf, or take the next step to becoming an Olympic Superstar. A great starter for budding junior athletes.

This fun course will take you from amateur to intermediate and teach you all the skills you need to enjoy your time kayaking.  The first lesson will involve capsize drills and self rescue, and then we will move on to water handling and learning the key strokes in the next lessons. The course teaches you to use moving water, and giving you the skills you need to master beginner whitewater.

All gear is provided – you just need to bring togs, easy dry clothes (no cotton) and a change of clothes. Footwear suitable for rafting or kayaking will be needed ( Sneakers do not fit in the boat), and lycra rashies or thermals are recommended depending on the weather.

The course is $175 for kids under 16 – this includes membership to the Canoes Plus Racing Team, so that you are covered by insurance and liability. This will also allow you to compete at events later in the year should you decide to continue on in whitewater slalom. Adults are welcome at extra cost ( $225)

This course will also give you an achievement certificate in flatwater kayaking/ basic skills, and if you reach the next level you can also achieve a certificate in moving water kayaking.
