What we're about

Welcome to Trinity Coalition Paddlesports. Whether your a kayaker, Canoeist or SUP'er there are activities for you!

When attending trips please arrive early enough before the posted departure time so you can load you boat and be ready to go. If the trip is posted for 10am, that means we leave the shore at that time. We require participants wear a personal flotation device (life jacket)

All members are encouraged to post ideas for trips as long as they are safe and within their abilities. Please feel free to get involved or ask questions.

Be aware that all participants are responsible for there own safety, if you feel a trip is being conducted in a unsafe manner or above your skill level you may leave the activity.

Hope to see you on the water!

How to Camp out of your Canoe or Kayak (Workshop)

Bowman Springs Park

Always wanted to go camping on the river with your canoe or kayak, but don't know quite how to start? Are you confused about what gear works well when kayak and canoe camping and the best ways to pack it? We can help. Trinity Coalition is hosting a seminar and workshop on camping out of your canoe or kayak. The seminar starts at 9:30am and the workshop starts at 10:30am. The seminar will go over the basics of camping on a lake or river from your canoe or kayak. Topics will include types of camping gear, tents, folding chairs, stoves, clothing, PFDs, etc… If you do NOT have camping gear designed for canoe and kayak camping PLEASE DO NOT purchase any gear until after this seminar. A few tips from us can save you money! The workshop is also for those of you who have camping gear and want to go through a dry run with experienced canoe / kayak campers on hand for tips and guidance. Bring your gear and canoe or kayak and practice packing everything into your boat. We will then be able to "float test" packed boats to make sure your packing plan actually works before you test it on a trip. Lead presenter is Dale Harris. President of the Dallas Downriver Club and the Trinity River Paddle Trail Chair. This workshop is free, though donations to Trinity Coalition are always appreciated.
