Moving Water Practice (weekly)
April 4 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Moving Water Training and Practice sessions. Tuesday evenings (rain or shine), 6:00 to 7:30 pm, April 4 through July 26, 2023. These sessions are held on the Meramec River at Hwy 141 in Valley Park, MO. Meeting location is Arnold Grove Trailhead. At 6:00 we will hit the water and paddle until 7:30, so arrive early to be ready.
Joe Sartori will lead, with other ACA instructors and experienced volunteers present (more welcome!). Bring your own boat and gear. Must sign a waiver. Come once or every week. No need to pre-register. RSVP is appreciated.
- We start off at a spot in the river with no current, warming up with some sweep and forward stroke progressions, a little bow draw work, and then blending strokes.
- Then with current, we practice peel-outs, ferries, and eddy turns.
Beginners welcome. If you are new to whitewater kayaking and have your sights set on the MWA clinic, this is essential for you. If you are not new to kayaking, these sessions can help you strengthen and refine your skills.
ACA Instructors, let Joe know if you’re willing to teach a skill or an evening session. Joe is a superb instructor and can give you feedback (afterward) as you refine your teaching.
