Details

This is a Level 3 class. It is for anyone who paddles on Rivers, period. It is not as technical as the Level 4 class which is geared more to the serious white water paddlers.

PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE ANNOUNCEMENT BEFORE SIGNING UP!!!

This class usually fills up fast so don't wait to long to secure your spot.

Even if you have just started paddling and never intend to paddle big rapids, you should consider taking this course. If you paddle any where on moving water this is for you. I took this course the first year I got in a boat and have now taken it a total of 5 times with different instructors. This is not a white water paddling class. This is a safety class for you and your paddling buddies. What do do if you fall out of your boat, how to wade across rapids to help someone or recover equipment, what do do if someone does get caught in a strainer or they get a foot entrapment. How to swim safely in moving water.

Trust me on this, ANYONE WHO PADDLES A KAYAK ON A RIVER needs this training. It will make you a much safer and confident paddler even though the course does not use boats!

Registration cuts off May 12th.

If you have any questions or want to talk about this with me, please call. [masked]

Warm regards to you all and I hope to see you on the river soon.

Keep reading please!!

This is a BASIC Swift Water Rescue Class. The things you learn will be very helpful to you even if you never paddle big white water. Any river has the potential to be dangerous and this class prepares you to paddle safe.

BOATS ARE NOT EVEN REQUIRED SO YOU WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO PADDLE IN WHITE WATER.
That means this class can benefit you regardless of your experience level.

I personally participate in a SWR class a minimum of every two years.
