Beyond the Basics!



Beyond the Basics
The Bow Valley Kayak Club's "next steps" program.

The Beyond Basics course runs once a week, for six consecutive weeks, in the evening.

This program is for those that have the basic skills necessary to navigate easy rivers and are looking to improve their technical ability, confidence, and fun on more challenging features and different rivers.

During the sessions we will explore new rivers and stretches of water, gain confidence going through bigger waves and features, learn more about line-choice, river reading, maneuvers, rescue tactics, equipment, and teamwork.
Some of the locations we may use are: The Bow river, the Kananaskis river, the Ghost river, and the Elbow river.

For anything we can help you with please contact: [email protected]
Or call our head coach Robbie on (587)-585-8711

This course is not suitable for beginners. The ability to navigate flat-but-moving water, use eddies, and safely exit the boat during a capsize is necessary before joining.
If you are a beginner have a look at our "zero to hero" courses.
