Kayaking: The Basics

This course is all about getting you comfortable enough in and around a kayak to hop on the opportunity to paddle when it arises. This course is located in Westerville Community Center's Pool so you can learn the basics in a controlled, warm environment. These are small classes, no more than 8 students, so it is a great time for specialized instruction that goes beyond the basics.

In this course we will:
Get comfortable in the kayak
Learn how to get in and out of your boat
Learn how to go forward, backward, stop, turn left, turn right, and turn sideways
Practice and apply paddle strokes
Talk about safety considerations
