Does the warm weather have you dreaming about spring runoff and river time? Are you thinking, “I should knock the rust off of my roll”? Last Sunday was the 1st of four open pool roll sessions hosted by the Spokane Canoe and Kayak Club and the Spokane Valley YMCA. There will be three more sessions over the next three weeks.
Sunday March 8th, 6:00pm-7:45pm
Sunday March 15th, 6:00pm-7:45pm
Sunday March 22nd, 6:00pm-7:45pm
All sessions will be hosted at the Spokane Valley YMCA facility and you must be a member. If you are not a club member you can join there. It is a great deal @ $25.00 per family a year.
This is a practice session only, not a class and you must bring your own equipment. This is a grass roots event with plenty of boaters on hand for tips, but there is no formal instruction. These sessions are specific for white water kayaks, but no worries for those with touring kayaks. The next four Sundays starting March 29th, the SCKC and YMCA will be hosting open pool sessions for those with touring kayaks that would like to practice their roll technique.
