We will be running rolling classes during the pool sessions. These can be a great way to introduce yourself to rolling a kayak, improve your current roll, or find new and different ways to right your boat whilst staying in it.
The sessions are led by our head coach and will have maximum numbers of 6 participants.

Join us at Elevation Place in Canmore for our pool session's. The pool sessions are a great place to work on your roll and paddling skills in warm water. Club members will be present to help beginners with wet exits and you can request instruction (subject to availability) to get started or for advanced skill development. All gear is provided for the pool sessions. You are also welcome to bring your own equipment. We recommend you bring a nose plug!
