Whether you are an experienced kayaker or a beginner kayaker looking for some pool time and perhaps a new paddling buddy, check out these roll sessions.

These sessions are unstructured, providing plenty of time to practice various skills at your own pace. There is no formal instruction but if you would like advice on your technique I will gladly help.

I’m going to give priority to those who have experience: Which would be having at least attended one of mine, or someone else’s, Intro to kayaking classes and/or be proficient at wet exiting a kayak and T-rescuing.

If resources permit – I’ll open it up to people who have never been in a whitewater boat, and I will briefly teach the intro stuff: Wet exit, some paddle strokes, T-rescue, etc and then you’re on your own to paddle around, refine these skills, and scavenge for tips from other boaters. Signup regardless of your level of experience, and indicate your experience in the Q/A and if you need the intro.

CLUB PROVIDES: a ride in a vehicle, boat transport, and any gear you may need.

YOU PROVIDE: Bathing suit, towel, your kayaking gear if you have it – but make sure it is CLEAN! – remove float bags from the boat and wash/vacuum it out such that it is free of leaves, sand, stinkbugs, and other debris! Helmets are required so make sure you bring yours if you have one.


The cost for these sessions is $10 – Bring it with you the day of, exact change preferred. If there is any doubt that you will be able to attend, please do NOT sign up! If you bail the day of, not only are you potentially depriving others of a spot, but you may be causing excess gear to be checked out and lugged around on your behalf (which is annoying at the least for no-shows.

I’ve set the trip departure time for 3:00pm, this should give sufficient time to get participants properly outfitted in the parking lot such that we can spend the entire 2 hours utilizing the pool! We have the pool from 4-6 which should be back to Charlottesville by 1900.
