Hey y’all! The long promised ODC pool kayaking time is here! Sorry for the last minute post, these will be posted a week in advance from here on out.

ODC in collaboration with UVA Outdoor Adventure has been allotted time and pool space to practice our whitewater kayaking skills! Pool sessions like these are great for any level of kayaker, whether you’ve never been in a boat before and want to learn some strokes, you’re looking to work on your kayak roll, or if you’re wanting learn and practice some playboating skills.

These pool sessions will take place at the AFC main pool on Tuesday nights from 8 to 10pm. Feel free to arrive earlier to get changed/geared up. Outdoor Adventure staff (your trip leaders) will aim to arrive by 7:45 to get the pool open by 8:00. You are welcome to enter the main entrance of the AFC and head down to the pool, or if you have your own boat/gear, enter through the AFC loading dock doors off of Gerald Drive. Our space is at the left end of the pool (nearest the hot tub) so come on over and meet the trip leaders. We’ll get you set with any gear you need and get you started with instruction if you’d like or just set you free for open practice. All participants are required to demonstrate a roll/wet exit/t-rescue if wanting to wear a skirt during open practice.

What to bring:
Swimsuit/clothes that you feel cool swimming in
Towel and change of clothes for after
optional: goggles and earplugs / your own nose plugs
optional: your own pfd, skirt, helmet, paddle, and boat if you have it

To get off the waitlist you MUST follow the link below to sign up for the program with UVA Outdoor Adventure, sign in and complete the necessary waivers and answer all questions.
This round, participants will be taken off the waitlist in a first-come-first-serve fashion hopefully consistent with who signs up for the Outdoor Adventure program. We’ll amend this in later rounds to take into account ability level and attendance frequency and not make it a race to see who signs up for the program first.

Hope to see you there!
