    Intro to Whitewater Kayaking. This is the perfect way to get started in whitewater kayaking. You will begin building fundamental skills indoors, in a warm pool. Skills include strokes, edging, and the roll, plus blending strokes for river maneuvers. Pool-side discussion will cover safety, gear, river running, and more.

    Learning to Roll a Kayak. Focused on rolling a whitewater kayak, this class is for you whether you are hoping to nail your first roll or wanting to practice and refine your roll to make it bomb-proof on the river. You will receive pool-side instruction and then work one-on-one with instructors in the pool, progressively learning and strengthening component parts of the roll until you have put it all together. Each student will receive two fifteen-minute roll session per class, leaving time for paddling around and getting to know the other students.

      Does the name Paul Kuthe remind you of anything Jon? Paul was 12 when he took the Forest Park pool kayaking class with his dad my brother Bob, Steve Landrum, Marty White and myself!

      I think the answer will be a resounding YES! 🙂 We don’t have a kids class for the MWA Clinic for nothing you know! We gotta teach our kids to be better paddlers than their ‘rents! 😉

    If there is a waiver for age, I would also be interested in signing up Jace, 13.  He’s already had the MWA Spring Clinic once.  And comes with Safety Boater Dad, if needed.
