Lyons Kids Kayak Club Kicks Off Sessions at Centennial Pool
The Town of Lyons Department of Parks, Recreation & Cultural Events and the Team Colorado Whitewater Racing Club would like to invite Lyons youth ages 7 to 16 to join them in Longmont at Centennial Pool to learn the basics of kayaking. The purpose of these classes is to prepare young kayakers for opportunities to participate in upcoming summer kayaking programs and learn basic kayaking skills in a comfortable environment. Fifteen classes will be offered on Fridays starting January 17th. *Beginner & intermediate classes will be held from 7pm to 8pm at Centennial Pool in Longmont on the corner of Alpine and Mtn. View. Students are encouraged to spend the first hour of class learning and the remaining time practicing on their own. Total duration of pool time will be 7pm-8:30pm. Instructional courses will be limited in size to ensure that the student instructor ratio remains reasonable. There is a $120 fee for students who pre register and a required waiver thru the Lyons
Department of Parks and Recreation. Adults/nonstudents may also participate. Those coming to paddle on their own or with their children may preregister for $85 as long as they do so by January 13, 2014. Drop in rates for adults/ non- students will be $10.00/ session. Contact the department for further details. Participants must be skilled swimmers and parents must provide transportation to and from the site. The Department of Parks, Recreation & Cultural Events has a limited amount of equipment it will lease to students for the duration of the pool sessions. Please contact the department for details.

*This year’s classes will be taught by world class, Spanish slalom paddler Jordi Domenjo. Jordi has been a member of the Spanish National Team for the past 17 yrs, is currently the 10th ranked C1 in the world having won the World Cup race on his home course in La Seu this past year and a bronze medal at the 2010 World Championship. He has also been the head coach of Team Cadi, one of the largest and most competitive paddling clubs in the world. Jordi is also a world class freestyle paddler and head coach of Team Colorado.
