Join us at Riverton Pool in Portland to learn and practice essential kayaking skills. Portland Paddle instructors will be present to offer one-on-one instruction on skills including rolling, bracing, rescues, strokes and more. This pool session will not be a formal class, but instead an open-ended opportunity for individuals to work on any skills they would like to learn or improve with the guidance of an instructor. The calm, warm waters of a pool can be an ideal environment for learning. Our pool sessions are also a great way to try out different kayaks, meet other local paddlers and get some paddling experience in the depths of winter. Pre-registration required; space is limited and a course minimum must be met to run.
Please arrive 20 minutes early. If you are bringing your own boat drive down the fire lane and unload your boat near the pool behind the basketball courts. Someone will open the pool doors by 1:45 so you can carry your boat inside. After unloading your boat please park in the main parking lot.
