Starting this year, Team Colorado Whitewater Racing is offering kayak classes to kids aged 8-16. It is a program that runs Monday-Friday 9am-1pm from June 16th-August 10th
. The classes are set up for all levels of paddler, from never-evers to elite athletes or high level boaters who would like to hone their skills in a fun, group atmosphere. This program runs $80/week
and includes rental of a boat, paddle, PFD, spray skirt, and helmet. Transportation is available to and from practice for an additional $50/week ($10/day, our team vehicle gets terrible gas mileage but can haul a lot of boats).
Team Colorado Whitewater Racing is a non-profit corporation set up with the aim of expanding the sport of kayaking in a safe, fun atmosphere. We have ACA instructors, former USA slalom national team members, USA Junior slalom team members, and world class racers for coaches. Our athletes have progressed from never having been in a kayak to racing for national teams across the world in a matter of years--something unheard of in a sport most people could spend a lifetime trying to master.

or e-mail me directly at [email protected]
. For the price, this is hands down the best kayak instruction program in the state. Don't miss your chance--space is limited!
