Lessons

We believe diversity is the key to develop a highly skilled athlete. With safety at the forefront, we teach whitewater kayaking skill training with the help of the fastest growing paddling discipline: kayak polo

Whitewater kayaking lessons are focused around the freestyle discipline. In the summer, we visit local areas with a standing wave, where surfing, spinning and different rolling tricks can be learned and practiced. In the winter, we play kayak polo.

Gated slalom practices are not yet an option in the Sudbury area, however the club has had decent results in competitions in the past based on the high-level boat control skills developed through kayak polo and freestyle training.

 

Equipment

Instructions, boats, paddles, spray skirts and helmets with face guards are all provided by the club. 

All practices are coached, and white water activities are dependent on river conditions.
