SEA YOU IN THE POOL
We are fortunate to have a large swimming pool to use during the winter months. This program allows you to bring your own kayaks into a warm, clean pool to practice and develop your skills. When it comes to capsizing a sea kayak there is a range of emotional and physical responses. This program is designed to allow you to explore the limitations of stability, build confidence and control, and most importantly how you will react when the kayak capsizes.
Join us in the pool to broaden your understanding of what can be done in a sea kayak and become more comfortable above and below the water.
* Build confidence and control in your kayak while working on rescues
* Develop your roll under the guidance of our coaching team
* Learn the rolling progression
WHAT 2 EXPECT
During the 2-hour time slot
Self Guided: Come work on your own skills under the watchful eye of our coaching staff
Bracing, Stability and recovery: Join us in the pool for a formal session on blade awareness, support strokes and preventing capsize in a comfortable, warm pool
Learn to Roll: The sessions will then work through the rolling progression.
We will be using the pool at the Rath Eastlink Community Center Pool in Truro. The aquatic facility boosts an 8 lane, 25m pool, plus a shallow area that we will use for rolling instruction.
Students are required to have all their own paddling gear to participate in this program. If you do not have your own kayaking gear, we offer equipment rentals for our pool this program. Sea kayak gear rentals are $30 and includes P&H Sea Kayak, Lendal Paddle, skirt, bailer, throw rope and helmet (if the program requires it). Equipment rentals should be arranged in advance of the program to ensure availability.
