Kayak Lessons

Kids in Kayaks!

Kids in Kayaks!

This is a clinic for kids about 10 to 15 years old. We will cover the basics of kayaking, practice some skills, and have some fun. The minimum age of 10 years old is important, if your child is younger than 10, contact me to discuss before registering. 

Some of the things we will cover in this course:

  • Parts of a kayak
  • What to do after a capsize
  • Wet exits (falling out)
  • Basic rescues
  • Forward stroke
  • Reverse stroke
  • Turning strokes

We'll finish off the morning in the pool with a few games, ensuring that everyone has a chance to get thoroughly wet.

Though not necessary, a pair of goggles and noseplugs are recommended to help the kids feel comfortable during their first wet-exits. Participants should also bring a lifejacket that fits them well (they will be wearing it throughout the course). If you do not have a lifejacket available, please contact me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 306-370-3462). Participants should be comfortable in the water.

Venue Information - Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre

Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre (HBAC) is located just off of Idylwyld Drive in Saskatoon near Saskatchewan Polytechnic (1110 Idylwyld Drive North). Sometimes they don't allow us to enter the pool area too much before our pool time so if you show up quite early they may not let you in to the change rooms. We usually meet on the pool deck (look for the rack of kayaks). Since we are not into the water until for a bit of time, don't shower when you come out to the pool area. 

Sorry, we are no longer accepting registration for this event
