It's that season again and soon the water outside will be hard. Not to worry, Dympna and I just booked 33 two hour pool clinics in 5 different locations. Until November 16th we are offering them for just $100. Last year we sold out quickly and early. The best thing for being proficient at rescues or rolling is practice and good instruction. Anyone can learn to kayak and learn to roll. Dympna, Scott, Heather and I travel internationally to train and bring back the most current coaching techniques from the worlds top coaches and symposiums. We will bring teaching aids such as various sizes of skin on frame rolling qajaqs, performance touring kayaks, Ipads with coaching software and other training aids.0 comments
Hi, It’s Dympna here. So we’re launching the new site. What a pile of work it has been! It’s funny; James and I come up with these ideas all the time, “ Hey, why don’t we do this trip?” Or “Why don’t we run courses here?” Or “Let’s run a big Greenland Symposium.” Or the real gem, “Let’s move everything we own up to a new home in Parry Sound, all in one day, including our 40 boats and gear for LTK and let’s not hire movers.” Well, this winter it was “Why don’t we expand LTK to cover a bunch of areas in Ontario that don’t have courses running, and let’s run more trips; longer expedition trips, and let’s invite more international paddlers to come and explore Ontario….and hey, we could run coaching courses and camping right here where we live. And I guess it’s not just Learntokayak.ca anymore, we need a name that explains who we are. And Ontario Sea Kayak Centre was born!Read More 0 comments
We’re having a pool party!
We had all of our pool sessions sell out within a week of posting this year. Unfortunately, quite a few people were disappointed which we don’t like to do. So, we’ve decided to have a giant pool party! We’ve rented the Wayne Gretsky Centre Pool in Brantford, ON on March 23rd. We have two sessions running, one from 4:30 -6:30, another right after from 6:30 - 8:30. You can book one or both for a discounted price – check out our Pool Clinics link.Read More 0 comments
Come and see us at the Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show!
Today is the day! It’s the launch of our new website and the first day of the Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show. We have a brand new booth, and a whole new program line-up for this year. We have new coaching and camping weekends at Ontario Sea Kayak Centre in Parry Sound. We are hosting a new Symposium right on Georgian Bay called Paddlepalooza - A Georgian Bay Kayak Festival. Come and see us at the show to hear all about it and then check out the website and discover what’s happening this summer for yourself. We’d love to hear any and all feedback you might have, including any spelling errors, please! We’ve been so busy getting the new site up that we’re bound to have missed a few ;0)Read More 0 comments
