    Join Soul Trak and the Canoe Cruisers Association at the pool to gain comfort and confidence in a kayak while in a safe, supportive environment for practicing.

    Volunteers from CCA will provide gear (life jacket/PFD, boats, and paddles) as well as guidance and pointers to practice maneuvering in a kayak. By practicing in a pool, participants gain confidence in rolling and exiting a kayak while in the water. Participants will have the opportunity to meet experienced kayakers, learn about whitewater kayaking, and gain confidence in a kayak in preparation for outdoor adventures! No experience necessary, just come ready to get wet and with enthusiasm to practice! These pool sessions will prepare participants to take the Soul Trak Whitewater Kayaking Class in July on the Potomac River in conjunction with Calleva River School.

    Soul Trak will be offering 3 total pool sessions in the months January, February and March. Due to limited volunteer and gear capacity, there will be a registration limit of 5 participants per session. If the session is full, we encourage you to try signing up for the next session or get on the waitlist as availability might open up. Registration for each session will close a week from the session date.
