Progressive 3 Evening Novice Indoor Pool Lesson

This lesson is great for kids through adults who like the outdoors.

This class covers the very same skills and information as our outdoor Novice Lake Lesson, only in the comfort of a heated pool. The majority of our beginning students have never been in a kayak or have very little paddling experience. We take the beginner from the very basics up through the techniques needed for river kayaking. Novice and intermediate boaters are welcome to refresh their strokes and roll. This course (or a demonstration of equivalent ability) is a prerequisite for our river trips.
What to Expect:
This course is designed for those who wish to pursue kayaking. Whether you want to paddle lakes, rivers, or oceans, this lesson will give you a strong foundation. Your program begins with an introduction to the boat and equipment. We progress quickly into entry and exit of the kayak, strokes, performing bow rescues, braces to keep yourself upright, deep water rescues, dock enders, and of course a detailed progression into the eskimo roll. After completion of this course you will have the necessary skills to progress to our novice river trip. Ask our staff about books or videos that might stimulate your learning process.
Scheduling Format:
The Novice Indoor Lesson is held in Golden, Colorado. The classes are scheduled for three consecutive weeks, one day a week. Class will be in the pool for 2 hours. Progressive 3 Evenings of Pool Lessons
includes: kayak, sprayskirt, paddle and flotation.
