Rapid Learning: Intro to Kayak and Skills Practice

May 1 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Learn how to whitewater kayak!!!!
Outdoor Chattanooga’s Rapid Learning Whitewater Program provides formal and equipped kayak instruction for beginning and seasoned kayakers.

To begin, participants attend an introduction to kayaking and roll class to learn essential skills and safe paddling techniques in the calm waters of the lake or pool. These classes are offered regularly throughout the year and can be joined at any time. Instruction is provided in a group setting with the emphasis on building skills according to the pace of each individual and paddling goals.

This dynamic program aims to get paddlers safely and comfortably paddling up to class III whitewater. Our instructors have years of instructional experience, on a variety of rivers worldwide and are nationally certified. Kayakers are eligible to attend instructional river trips once they have demonstrated essential skills such as confident wet exits, basic self-rescue, and effective maneuvering of the whitewater kayak during an Intro Class.

Join our skills development classes at any time of the year; no prior experience, reservations, or equipment required. Your first visit is free!

Kayak skills practice for adults and kids ages 8 and older. Minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

All equipment provided.
