Looking for Kayak pool training in Bozeman

My buddy just got a kayak and needs some training. There's got to be a weekly roll clinic somewhere around here. He's capable and ready to learn if anyone wants to teach for beers.

Most of the actual classes occur earlier in the spring and winter. I know of one through Northern Lights that is pretty spendy and then the University offers one for around $50, but I think they are done for the year.

There are also some great ponds in Bozeman to practice rolling, East Gallatin Recreation Area, Bozeman Pond, and the Gallatin County Regional Park AKA 100 Acre Park.

So neither the BHS pool or the MSU H&PE pools have open boating anymore? I R sad.

MSU used to have a session 5-7pm on Thursday nights....Bozeman High's was 7-9pm on Thursday nights. I got tired after 4 hours of rolling...but dammit, I got pretty good my first year!!




...of course, my beta is 15 years old.

Call the barn. MSU offers a class but not during summer sessions.

BHS and MSU still offer boating sessions but once summer hits I don't think they are open anymore. Plenty of places to practice outdoors but instruction is the key here.
