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.
