    Learn some rescue skills to make your river paddling less stressful. We will cover basic canoe rescue skills on flatwater, then take what we've  learned to the river to practice there. Some skills covered will be t-rescues, parallel rescues, clip and tow, and self rescue. This is for those who want to brush up and refresh some of their skills or for those who have never learned them, and can be either tandem or solo paddlers. 

    Be prepared to swim so bringing a change of clothes and having wet suits, or partial dry suits would be good. Participants are encouraged to use their own canoes and gear (paddles, lifejackets, throw-bags, etc) or the club can also supply all the necessary gear. Pack a lunch and snacks as this will be a full day.

    This program is an introduction to the skills and knowledge necessary to paddle rivers like the Upper Red Deer and Wildhay safely and efficiently.

    Course participants must be able to control a canoe from both bow and stern with the basic canoeing strokes and have proficiency on CLASS 1 rivers.

    This will be a weekend course where we will camp alongside the river at either Cartier Creek or another site farther upstream. Plan to arrive Friday evening as we would like to start as early in the morning as possible. 

    Participants are encouraged to bring their own paddling gear (canoes, paddles, PFDs/lifejackets, dry-suits or wet suits,  float-bags are highly recommended, throw-bags, etc.). The club can provide equipment if necessary.
