Tips for the Pool

  • Bring your bathing suit, towel, eyeglass guards (if you wear glasses), nose plugs* (you’ll be upside down a lot), synthetic top or similar garment for warmth as some pool water is cold.
  • Leave jewelry at home, it can break, or fall off; there’s no time to search the pool for lost charms!
  • Bring a lock for the locker room.
  • Leave valuables at home.
  • You do not need to bring your own equipment, unless you have your own whitewater kayak you wish to learn in.
  • Please be on time for all classes, especially the classroom session, as topics will not be repeated, come a few minutes early.
* Nose plugs vary and we highly recommend paddling specific ones
