PC Kayak Instructor Pre-Course/CM Clinic

PC Kayak Instructor Pre-Course/CM Clinic


This course is operating as both a Pre-Course for Instructor Candidates in the weekend's Paddle Canada Basic Kayak Instructor Course, and a Paddle Canada Certification Maintenance Clinic for existing instructors to undergo their Professional Development requirement. 

For instructor candidates, the Paddle Canada Instructor Pre-Course is your opportunity to ensure that your paddling skills are polished and ready for the weekend's instructor course. Skills need to be "demonstration quality" as a PC instructor. We'll help you get there if you need a little extra work on those skills. 

For existing Paddle Canada instructors, this CM clinic is an opportunity to work with Tony Palmer, one of Paddle Canada's senior instructor trainers to hone your instruction skills and to learn some new instructing tips and techniques. A fun day on the water, this CM clinic is liekly to have you feeling refreshed as an instructor and excited to continue teaching and spreading the kayak love in Saskatchewan. This is a rare opportunity to work with an Instructor Traininer (Tony Palmer) from outside of Saskatchewan with no airfare required, don't miss it! 

Prerequisites: You must either be an instructor candidate registered in the Basic Kayak Instructor Course, or an existing Paddle Canada Kayak instructor. 


  • Students in this course are expected to have their own paddling gear. If you do need a kayak or other gear, please make arrangements with Bryan well in advance of the course. 
  • This course is late in the season and we will be IN the cold water. Good immersion wear is a requirement: wetsuit, drysuit, or drytop/drypants combination.

Venue Information - Pike Lake Provincial Park

Our lessons at Pike Lake occur at the Cabin Owner's Beach (aka North Beach or Hoyte's Beach) near the tennis courts and the Girl Guide camp. There is a park gate just north of where we meet, but it is locked during the summer months so you will need to arrive via the main gate. There is a basic outhouse here but no other amenities. A tarp will be set up if rain threatens.
