Pool Clinics

Pool kayak rescue and rolling lessons

Spring 2017 Pool sessions are here! 

We are passionate about teaching rolling and have been working on our coaching methods in terms of teaching rolling for over 10 years now. We were honored to have been chosen as the first rolling instructor trainers by Paddle Canada in 2014. 

Our kayak pool clinics which we offer during the early spring months, provide paddlers with the opportunity to develop and hone their paddling, rolling and rescue skills indoors in the comfort of a heated pool. During past years we have had numerous determined students sign up for up to eight sessions over the course of the winter. The students worked on everything from wet exits and beginner rescues to rolling, static brace, offside rolls, re-enter and rolls, forward finishing rolls, laybacks including hand rolls, sculling for support and so on. The improvement in these paddlers skills has been incredibly satisfying and exciting for both the students and for us as their coaches. 

We know that not everyone has the time to commit to 6 or 8 sessions, it's just our suggestion to those of you who want to make a marked difference and improve/maintain skills during the winter. Each session is also a stand alone session. At every session we have a discussion to evaluate where people are in their skills and what their goals are for that session. We then split up the group with different instructors depending on what skill you are working on and then work together to towards success.

To accomodate those students who wish to make this their winter project, we have discounted rates for multiple classes. Our booking software won't accomodate the discounted prices so you'll have to phone us if you want to book three or more classes. We'll have to sign you up manually so we can book you into your preferred classes and book your classes at the discounted rate.

  • a nose plug is recommended, and earplugs if desired
  • diving masks are excellent to use while training
  • You are welcome to bring your own kayak to work with if you like.

During the summer, contact us to arrange private and semi-private rolling lessons. Additional kayak courses are available at our secluded kayak coaching centre near Parry Sound.
