Kayaking classes in November

Indoor paddling sessions are available through the Chilliwack Centre of Excellence in November.

The Chilliwack Centre of Excellence is holding indoor kayak lessons at Cheam Leisure Centre pool this fall and winter.

Students will learn the basics of kayaking during two two-hour sessions on Nov. 3 and 10 (from 2 to 4 p.m.)

The lessons will cover basic boat control, safety precautions to consider when kayaking and self-rescue techniques in a life guard supervised environment.

The CCE will provide the boat, paddle, spraydeck, lifejacket and instruction.

At the conclusion of these lessons students will have learned enough basic boat control to feel comfortable paddling on lakes and other flat water.

Space is limited and early registration is recommended.

Drop in practice time is also available for CCE members.

At these sessions, paddlers can practice fitness, rolling and basic boat control.

Club equipment can be used and will be allocated first to those who register online, then on a first come first serve basis.

Each session is $10 for 2 hours of paddling.
