Kayak Clinics

Kayak Clinics at the Vanderbilt Recreation and Wellness Center

Join our trained kayak instructors on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00 pm at the pool for our weekly kayak roll classes. Participants will be trained in a variety of introductory whitewater kayaking skills including: equipment introductions, paddling strokes, wet exits, assisted rescues, and the kayak roll.

Each class is independent from the others. Knowledgeable kayak instructors and kayaking equipment are provided for class participants. Participants are welcome to bring their own equipment, however, it MUST be thoroughly rinsed prior to entering the pool.

Each class is $5.00 for current Rec members and $15.00 for non-Rec members.
