Beyond the Basics (Instruction)

This class is designed for people who need to solidify, refine and expand their skills to the point that they can execute them automatically when needed. It is geared toward ACA Level 2 competencies. We’ll be focusing on mastering control of your boat and how to paddle in the most effective, efficient and safe manner. Strokes to be covered will depend on the composition of the group but will likely include a review and some enhancement of forward, reverse, and sweep strokes. We will move on to introduce additional draws, bow rudder and stern rudder. In addition to the “how to”, we’ll focus on why certain strokes have particular effects on the boat. We also put a lot of emphasis on using big muscles (torso, legs) for efficiency, instead of relying on just your arms. Additional skills that will be taught include bracing, and an emphasis will be placed on quickly and effectively performing assisted rescues. COST - $35
