Kayak Safety Clinics (Ages 8 & Up)
Registration and payment can be completed online, by phone at 906-487-2073, or at the SDC Ticket Office. Participants must have a current signed SDC waiver of liability, OAP release, and concussion awareness form on file at the SDC Ticket Office prior to participation. The SDC is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Please do not leave valuables unattended.
It might still be a little early to get you out on the open water, but we can help you work on your skills in the pool! Sign up now for the OAP Kayak Safety Sessions and refine those skills to keep you safe on the water. We try to meet each participant at their level and encourage them to challenge themselves. We will cover topics including kayak re-entry, de-watering your kayak, and wet exits. The focus will be on practice and improving technique; the more you do it, the better you will get! All equipment will be provided, including PFD's, kayaks, paddles, and paddle floats. Appropriate swimwear is required.
Location: SDC Lap Pool
No kayaking experience is necessary. Participants must be at least 8 years old and able to swim at least 15 yards unassisted. Secure fitting, appropriate swimwear required (no 2 pieces or speedos). A parent must be present for participants under age 14.
